Mem­o­ries on the menu at lunch

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

FORMER Perth Col­lege stu­dents Beryl Hane­man (nee Fowler) and Mar­ion Wood (nee Fyfe) re­cently en­joyed lunch where they would have once played ten­nis.

The women who went to PC from 1936 to 1941 and 1928 un­til 1937 re­spec­tively were among 40 Old Girls who at­tended a ‘Vin­tage’ Re­union for stu­dents who left PC be­fore 1955.

The group had lunch in the Ju­dith Cot­tier The­atre foyer, which used to be a ten­nis court.

At 94, Mar­ion said her par­ents went through a lot to send her to PC dur­ing the De­pres­sion era. Beryl (91) re­turned to the school af­ter grad­u­at­ing to work in the in­fir­mary as a nurse.

Perth Col­lege was es­tab­lished in Mt Law­ley 100 years ago but was first opened in 1902 in West Perth.
