Western Suburbs Weekly - - Mayors’ Messages -

ROYAL Perth Hospi­tal nurs­ing school grad­u­ates from the class of 1967 will be cel­e­brat­ing their 50th re­union in Jan­uary.

The Class of ’67 nurs­ing stu­dents will gather at the Royal Ho­tel in East Perth at noon on Satur­day, Jan­uary 7 to catch up and re­lieve past glo­ries.

For­mer nurs­ing stu­dents can RSVP by con­tact­ing Janet Ben­der on 9447 1871.

RPH was the state’s lead­ing nurs­ing school for many decades.

The first nurse was ac­cepted for nurse train­ing at what was then the Perth Pub­lic Hospi­tal in 1896 and the last RPH grad­u­at­ing class was in 1975.

In Septem­ber, the RPH Ex-Trainees & As­so­ciates cel­e­brated its 80th an­niver­sary.

The group started in 1936 to help nurses who trained at RPH to “main­tain con­tact and fel­low­ship”.
