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.
