On Friday 26th July, 11 Old Aquinians from the Class of 1977 enjoyed a sumptuous three-course luncheon in the Waterford Dining Room.

The event was courtesy of Brad (’77) and Lisa Sinclair who successfully bid for the luncheon at the 2018 Foundation Ball Silent Auction.

According to Brad, the group thoroughly enjoyed its afternoon at the College and was amazed at the “beyond-restaurant quality” served up by Steve Lewis and his staff.

“Everything was fabulous and I had a most enjoyable afternoon catching up with our ’77 group,” said Brad. “The meal was nothing short of amazing … a far cry from back in our Aquinas days. Everyone has contacted me since the lunch to say what a terrific day it was. It surpassed all of our expectations.”

“We all thoroughly enjoyed a very special day back at Aquinas and all felt so privileged to have attended such a wonderful school and to have such long-standing friendships from our time spent at Aquinas.”

Headmaster David McFadden, Dean of Development Peter Robertson and Head of Boarding Sean Henderson all dropped by to say hello. With 10 out of 11 of the group former boarders, Sean Henderson also took the group on a guided tour of the new boarding facilities.

“A big thank you to Nichole (Alumni & Events Administrator) for putting it all together - the Power Point and Annuals, matching the wines, taking photos on the day and organising a visit from the Headmaster: it set the mood for a good trip down memory lane for us all, ” said Brad.
