Seeking old classmates
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.
