SPOCA Dinner 2019 - Nov 15

posted Oct 27, 2019, 5:59 PM by Saint Patricks
Dear Patricians,

SPOCA Annual Dinner in 2019 is on November 15. Earlier start time of 6:00 pm

Following the 50th anniversary commemoration in November last year, in 2019 we have the opportunity to continue the recollections.

A professional video has been generously produced by SPC alumnus Stephen Bowman (1949-55). The film, which includes archival footage and still images, importantly captures today’s Reflections of a dozen Patricians who attended SPC between 1937 and 1968. Key events and significant teachers of the College’s last 30 years are remembered by these eye witnesses.

St Patrick’s College East Melbourne – Our School Reflections will be launched at the Annual Dinner where copies will be available for purchase for a nominal cost.

You are invited to enjoy these recollections and to reflect on and share your own memories. You can do this by joining colleagues at this special Dinner or by sending your thoughts, memories and memorabilia to SPOCA for inclusion in our ongoing collection, now under the sustained care of the Xavier College Archives.

Those who attend the Dinner this year will also have the opportunity for their voices to be recorded for posterity in a filmed accompanied choral version of “Semper Fidelis”, our School Song which was first publicly presented in Cathedral Hall in December 1960.

Dinner bookings are now open. Please refer to the booking form attached.

Fresh faces will be welcomed. Familiar faces always are.

If you have email access please let us know as this enables more contact.
