Seek­ing old class­mates

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opnion - Ju­lian Wright

FOR­MER Mt Law­ley Pri­mary School stu­dents are plan­ning a re­union with a twist.

Peo­ple of­ten try to track down old high school bud­dies, but Greg Scan­nell, Rolf Perey and Deb­bie Swartz (nee Ulmer) are seek­ing their Mt Law­ley Pri­mary School Year 7 class­mates from 1968.

Mrs Swartz said this year was ev­ery­one’s 60th birthday.

“High school re­unions are com­mon­place these days, but it is rare to be able to sum­mon 40-odd peo­ple from the ear­li­est years of pri­mary school,” she said.

“The idea came about when a few past class­mates ran into each other and de­cided it would be a more unique idea to try and gather as many other stu­dents from those very young years.

“It then be­came a mat­ter of form­ing a small com­mit­tee to meet and look at class pho­tos and try to re­mem­ber ev­ery­one’s names and then set about try­ing to make con­tact.”

Con­tact Greg Scan­nell on 0409 080 554, Rolf Perey on 0458 010 880 or Deb­bie Swartz on 0418 951 998.

The re­union will be held at the school on Oc­to­ber 23 from 1pm to 4pm.
