65th Anniversary and Sports Hall of Fame Dinner
Saturday 15 October 2022

The St Vincent’s Past Students Association invites past students, partners and friends to a Reunion dinner to acknowledge the 65th Anniversary of the opening of St Vincent’s College at Junortoun, with the focus of the evening being the recognition and celebration of the College’s sporting achievements – both teams and individuals.

The Champion Football, Athletic and Cricket teams of the decades – 1950s, 1960s and 1970s – as well as elite individual achievements in Basketball, Baseball, Swimming, Tennis and Soccer achieved during the life of the College will be announced during the evening.

This may be the final St Vincent’s Past Students Reunion Dinner, so lets make it a very successful one! Bookings are now open for the dinner. We require you to organise a place at a table and pay for your ticket(s) by Wednesday 31 August. Refer to the Table Captains or you could become a Table Captain and organise your own table.
