Over 60 Old Paradians gathered for their 20 Year Reunion at the Old England Hotel on Friday 12 May. It was a tremendous turnout with some men finding themselves available and arriving last minute.
Thank you to those who put in the effort to promote the event on social media and it is because of this we had such a great turnout. Special thanks to former teacher David McGrath for making the trip down from Queensland for the event.
We would also like to remember Daniel Frezza who was remembered on the night. Daniel fought some serious health issues whilst at school and sadly passed away in 2008.
College Captain, Christopher Cicutto, was able to reflect on the bonds and connection that were made at school and acknowledged, through the passage of time, that this connection to the College grows, together with an appreciation of what the College afforded its students. Christopher’s dad and long time staff member Anthony did not attend, instead saying that he would let Christopher enjoy the evening without his father!!
Two former AFL Players Adam Pattison and Rick Dyson were in the room as well as Mark Bilyj, who is about to travel to Greece for the World Deaf Basketball Championships. The warmth and camaraderie in the room was commendable.
Thank you to Lexie Stewart, Officer and Development Team member for all her efforts in making the evening a success.
