The evening, which was held in the Edmund Rice Centre, was a huge success, providing an opportunity for past and current students to perform musical items. Over two hundred ex-students, teachers and support staff along with current staff and students were entertained with a range of outstanding musical performances from different eras and genres.
The evening provided many old boys with the opportunity to connect with old school mates, some of whom had not seen each other for over thirty years. Also present on the evening was the first ever female student to join classes at St Edward’s, Mrs Mavourna Collits. Mavourna attended the College in 1958 to study Latin with Br Shanahan the first College Principal. The “Forever the Black and Red” historical publication was also launched on the night marking the seventy years that St Edward’s has provided a quality Catholic Education to young people of the Central Coast.
I would like to thank Mrs Annette Rankin, the College Leader of Performing Arts, Mr Paul Toole, Music Teacher and Mrs Meagan Armstrong, Event Coordinator, for their work in organising this historical occasion.
