A wonderful night to celebrate our Class of 2020 – Plenty Campus!
Gathering at The Brunswick Mess Hall, a business owned by alumni Scott Assender ’90, a total of 71 students and staff reconnected on 14 May 2021.
Reminiscent of an airport arrivals hall, it was evident the cohort was excited to see each other and also their year 12 leadership team. Laughter could be heard throughout the venue and there was a genuine sense of family in the room.
Many of the Plenty Campus Class of 2020 are studying at universities across Melbourne.
Biomedicine at Melbourne, Commerce and Architecture at Monash and Sports/Commerce at Latrobe seem to be the most popular courses amongst the cohort.
It was also great to see Liam Nichol enjoying his electrical apprenticeship with alumni Tristian Grieve (’99) from Roar Connected.
President of the OIGA, Wayne Vanderwert mentioned it was ‘outstanding to have the Class of 2020 reconnect at this event given their final year was affected by the start of Covid.
OlGA Councillor and former year 10 boys’ basketball coach Alex Bacskos (’13) was in attendance and commented ‘it was great to reconnect with the basketball boys, they have developed into fine young men and it was a pleasure to hear what they are now studying. Hopefully, I may see a few of them down at the OIGA Football Club in the future’.
