Invitation to our 60th Anniversary: Sunday 26 November

 

Dear former students and staff

We are delighted to invite you to join us on Sunday, 26 November as we celebrate 60 years of education: from the early days of Elwood High, then Elwood Secondary and Elwood College today.

1pm-4pm  Sunday 26 November

101 Glenhuntly Road, Elwood

 

It’s an exciting time at Elwood College as we remember the school’s wonderful history while looking forward to the future. We are currently undergoing an extensive rebuilding program, with a new wing nearing completion and refurbishment of the Glenhuntly Road main building about to commence.

While building work delays will impact on the number of buildings we can open, the anniversary celebration will give former students the opportunity to connect with each other and a final chance to tour one of our oldest buildings before its demolition. There will also be music and refreshments.

The event will run from our Science and Language Centre (entered from Glenhuntly Road) between 1pm-4pm.

If you plan to join us on Sunday, 26 November, please RSVP (with your name/maiden name and graduating year) by emailing alumni@elwood.vic.edu.au

You may also wish to bring along memorabilia to share on the day.

Please forward this on to any former students or staff who may wish to be informed.

Assistant Principal

Alumni Speakers

As part of our 60 year celebrations, we have invited past students back to Elwood College to share their school memories and career experiences. We are very grateful to diabetes advocate and blogger Ashley Ng (attended Elwood College 2003-2007), Prof. John Zeleznikow (1964-1968), Prof. Damien Kingsbury (1969-1972) and The Hon. Justice Mordy Bromberg (1971-1975) for giving their time to the school. Their presentations were both entertaining and insightful, and the feedback from students of all year levels was fantastic.

Pictured here are Damien Kingsbury and Mordy Bromberg with our senior students.

We are looking forward to Georgina Chin Quan (1962-1964) joining us next month.

Former parent and school council president Sue Constable has collated the fascinating stories of numerous alumni, which you can read on our website at https://www.elwood.vic.edu.au/past-students
