Old Boys Upcoming Events and News
2023 Back to Waverley Day
On 2 November we celebrated ‘Back to Waverley Day,’ and welcomed our alumni who graduated 50 years or more ago. It was nice to honour our graduates from the year 1973.
We always look forward to welcoming Old Boys back to our growing campus, and this year we had 110 Old Boys from the years 1950-1973 in attendance.
Memories were shared, through a short mass, morning tea, assembly and lunch.
We especially thank Dr Michael Hession, (Class of 1973) College Captain for his moving address to the College during Assembly.
We also had the pleasure of seeing our Pasifika Group perform the Sasa (Samoa) and Haka (New Zealand) on stage. The performance was enjoyed by past and present students, as well as our invited Pasifika families and extended families.
The 2024 Tour Jazz Ensemble delivered their delightful debut performance as a group, featuring the musical piece ‘Stolen Moments,’ originally composed by Oliver Nelson, arranged by Mike Kamuf, and conducted by music teacher Ms Jazz de Witte.
We thank everyone who attended this wonderful day of reconnection and friendship.
Waverley College Generations Breakfast
As an Old Boy, who is a father, grandfather, uncle or relative of a student currently at Waverley, you are invited to join us for breakfast in Term 2.
This is an opportunity to come together and celebrate and acknowledge your history at the College alongside your younger relative, by having a light breakfast together before the school day begins.
Commemorative generation pins will also be issued to you as we celebrate our 120th year in education.
