TOBA GRADUATION BREAKFAST 2018

 

 

IMG_9383

TOBA welcomed the Class of 2018 in to the Association at the traditional Graduation Breakfast where families and loved ones gathered in Carrigg Court to celebrate this significant milestone.

Peter Torre (‘89) welcomed the group and reminded the boys about the very special gift of a Trinity education that their parents had given them. He told the boys that this gift was not only financial, but the gift of so many hours attending to matters in respect of their education. In recognition of this, the boys gave their parents a standing ovation as a small way to say “thank you”.

We were privileged to have guest speaker, Mark Readings (’87), address the group. Mark spoke about the deep connection and camaraderie formed during his time at TC and the continuing friendships he shares with the Class of 1987, divulging that the their 30-year reunion last year literally went for three days! Mark also shared some amusing anecdotes from his school days and encouraged Year 12s to attend TOBA events, so they can check out other Old Boys and see how they might look in a few years or decades!

Following the speeches, Mr Torre and Mr Readings presented each of the 2018 graduates with their TOBA tie and hat. As is tradition, the graduates swapped their current College tie with the TOBA tie prior to moving to the Sports Centre for the formal College assembly.

 

GOLDEN HERITAGE CLUB HEAD BACK TO THE CLASSROOM

GHC with JS boys RumbleGolden Heritage Club members (past students that left the College 50+ years ago), were invited ‘Back to the Classroom’ to be interviewed by Year 6 students. Old Boys enjoyed sharing their knowledge and stories of what school was like ‘back in the day’.

After the interviews, the conversation continued over afternoon tea where students looked after their new buddies before everyone took their seats for the Junior School Assembly.

TOBA WINTER SPORTS DAY

Bryan Breheny ('04) scores a tryThe weather didn’t deter the TOBA/TC community last Sunday, with a great turn out to support teams. The TC spirit was abundant, on and off the field!

We were fortunate to have former WCE player Jacob Brennan (’07) playing on the TOBA football team. Jacob is the son of the football trophies namesake, Michael Brennan (’82) and it was only fitting that Jacob presented the trophy to the winning team (TC First XVIII).

The medal for TC Spirit was presented to Chris Jones (’97) by the inaugural winner, Bryan Breheny (’04). Chris is a massive supporter of all things TOBA and TC and consistently involved behind the scenes and on the field! Chris recently celebrated 200 games with Trinity Aquinas Football Club.
