Reunions & Gatherings
Peer Year Reunions
An extensive Peer Year reunions program is offered. This is a wonderful way to stay in touch with school friends, renew social contacts and perhaps make some valuable professional ones.
Each year, reunions are coordinated for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50 year reunions as well as an informal 1-year-on gathering.
Correspondence is sent out to the relevant Peer Year past students at the start of the calendar year to commence the planning process. It is recommended to form a ‘committee’ for your upcoming reunion. This is best represented by three to four people from different friendship circles during your school days, which provides a wider reach to your peers and often results in greater attendance.
Please note your Peer Year is based on when you (would have) completed Year 12. Even if you left school earlier, you are still included in your Year 12 reunion festivities.
Jayne Bayles, the Alumni Coordinator and Secretary of the Collegians Committee, can assist with reunion planning by offering:
• Collate Peer Year database, venue selection, invitations, catering, date selection
• Coordinate College tour, led by Principal, Andy Muller
• Create and distribute invitations
• Feature reunion details in Focus, on the College website and Scotch Oakburn College Collegians Facebook page
• Contact selected current and past staff members
• Manage RSVPs
• Provide access to College Archives for photograph selection
• Create movie montage or album, for viewing at your reunion
