The Ivanhoe Grammar School Centenary Dinner

Good morning,

On Saturday evening I attended the Centenary Dinner in honour of Ivanhoe Grammar School in the Buckley Hall at the Lockley Campus, The Ridgeway in Ivanhoe. The evening was organised by the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians Association and I am delighted to report that the Class of 1972 was very well represented with some 22 attendees.

The night started with pre-dinner drinks and canapés generously hosted by Nigel & Freya Preston and it really got the conversation going. It was a real treat to catch up with many of my former student friends, some of whom I haven't seen for about 43 years! The meal, wine, musical interludes and speeches were all well received but the highlights of the evening were a warm rendition of the school song immediately followed by a rousing version of the IGS war cry.

Ego-ya indeed!

Bye for now, BomberBoy
