Over the weekend of 11–13 November the class of 1986 had their thirty year reunion, their second for the year as not all members of the cohort were able to attend the first reunion over the founders’ Day Weekend in May.
Many celebrations were had over the 3 days at various venues around Canberra including the National Press Club in Barton and Little Brooklyn in Kingston as well as a Heritage Walk and morning tea at Canberra Girls Grammar School on the Sunday.
The ladies started the morning off meeting at the iconic Boarding House before their tour guides, year 9 boarding students, Sarah Gosney and Crystyl Palma kicked off the walk.
After an hour of reminiscing in buildings familiar to them and admiring the newer buildings not so familiar to them the group finished off with a morning tea where Principal, Anne Coutts officially welcomed them back to the school by sharing with them some of the hopes and dreams they had written down prior to graduating in 1986.
Those who were boarders at the school were given a separate tour of the boarding house prior to attending a lunch in Kingston, the last of their celebrations for the weekend.
Thank you to those involved in the organisation of this weekend.
