Old Boys – September Newsflash

2nd October 2014

Organisers did great job with Farrer reunion

Oct. 2, 2014, 4 a.m.

HAVING attended the Farrer high school 75th reunion at TRECC, I would like to congratulate the organisers and caterers for doing such a wonderful job getting 800 people to attend and then seating them and feeding them a lovely three-course meal.

The fact Farrer had 41 students sit for the leaving certificate in 1960 and 33 of them attended from near and far to renew friendships 54 years later is impressive in itself.

Remember these “boys” are now 71 years old.

It shows me how much respect, loyalty and commitment to their teachers and teammates these boys had.

It shows what a wonderful character and respect for other cultures was built into these boys by Farrer.

The culture learned at Farrer and instilled into these boys gave them a better chance in life to succeed.

Having the school’s first 13 coach Geoff Fowler at the reunion was a highlight for me.

Congratulations, Farrer.
