    Flashback Friday: Today we head back to 1978 and a photo taken from the Year book of an excursion to the Flinders Ranges. Below is a snippet of an article from Vertigo 1974 taken from Ten years at Aquinas Girls College 1967. Guitar Club 'Another group of people out to achieve something at Aquinas is the Guitar Club. With Mr Cudmore as the teacher, the guitar club was founded in 1974 and since then approximately fifty students have learnt the guitar under the guidance of their competent teacher. The club offers a seven grade syllabus with exams for promotion. An annual presentation night is held where students of distinction are awarded a certificated stating their achievement for the year. In 1975 a form four student, Carol Walsh, who is now in form five green, received the honour of being awarded “student of the year”. As this club provided the only opportunity for learning a musical instrument at Aquinas, we hope it will continue for many years to come.'

    With our Annual Reunion Event not too far away (March 18), we thought it would make for some fun posting some 'oldies but goodies' pics. The photo below is from 1968. Anyone recognise themselves? We also have a snippet of something written in Pot-Pourri Vol 1 No:1 (1969). Leaving Humanities: On Thursday, 6th March, Forms 5 & 6 were taken to see ‘Macbeth’ at Monash University’s Alexander Theatre. Anyone expecting a first class performance had his hopes shattered when the play began. The main reason for its lack of success was the bad acting, even though it had the makings of a good production. Most found it quite boring, but nevertheless, as a school activity it was a success and it was pleasing to witness the improved behaviour all around.
