1970 was a stand-out year for Waverley College.
In February, the new ‘Middle School’ building was opened by Prime Minister John Gorton. The event attracted a significant number of demonstrators wishing to voice their opinions to the PM about the issues of the day: the Vietnam War and conscription, and the level of government funding provided to Catholic and other Independent schools.
In November, the swimming pool was officially blessed by Fr Kieran OFM and opened by the Mayor of Waverley. The entire school community celebrated with a ‘swim-a-long’, an extended carnival of swimming and diving events capped off with a bbq.
