Class of 1953 – 60 Year Reunion
In the year when Newington is celebrating its Sesquicentenary, old boys from the Leaving Certificate year of 1953 (as it was known before the advent of the HSC) celebrated 60 years since leaving the College with a lunch at Sydney’s Royal Automobile Club on 9 August, 2013. Twenty nine old boys attended the lunch, including the Chairman of Newington College Council, Hon RN (Angus) Talbot who acted as MC. Apologies received from those unable to attend were acknowledged, as were the 25 classmates who had sadly passed away.
A highlight of the 1953 year was the GPS Rugby Premiership won by our First XV. Three members of the winning team, Barry Clinton, David Lo & Neil McCamley were at the lunch, David & Neil travelling respectively from Darwin & Port Macquarie to attend. As would be expected, there were many reminiscences between old classmates, some who had not seen each other since leaving school. Visit the Newington Old Boys Directory Photo Board to view photos.
