Class of 1957
The Class of 1957 recently joined together to celebrate their 65 year reunion. A two day celebration was held with the first event at the home of Bettena Henty followed up on the next day, with tables at Sandwiches and Song. It was wonderful for so many ladies to be able to get together with many travelling interstate to join in on the festivities ! Thank you to Bettena Henty (Madden), Penny Reardon (Boys) and Kate Perkins (Hayes) for their organization and hospitality.
Class of 1970
The Kincoppal Class of 1970 were not able to have their 50 year reunion “on time” due to COVID, however they did finally get together for a high tea at the home of Michelle Feehan at the end of 2022. Many stores were swapped and friendships renewed.
The 1970 Kincoppal class had been very small in the Junior School (about 20 girls) and was augmented significantly in Year 7 (1965) with many girls arriving from Rose Bay, due to a decision that all the girls at Rose Bay, would have to become boarders from Year 7. At 40 girls, our class was bigger than any before it at Kincoppal. Our class size restricted the number of classrooms we could use and essentially meant we had the same classroom for several years – until that room was turned into the “library” and we were migrated to the Boarders study room on the top floor.
The group remembered their fabulous teachers Mrs Fox, Mrs Bourke, Mrs Radziminski, Ms Barbarian, Mrs Guy as well as Sr Hayes, Sr Kenny, Sr Hore, Sr Kennedy and many more. They reminisced about rounders on the point, the Sickroom at the door to the Flat roof and Sr Hayes borrowing a student’s car to drive ill students to their homes !
Ladies travelled from Queensland, Melbourne, Berrima and the Central Coast. They saluted those that were unable to join them for the festivities and remembered those ladies that had passed away; Patrica Anthony, Kerry Bourke (Barrett) and Robin Pearce. RIP.
Class of 1983
There was a great turnout for the Class of 1983 who gathered for lunch at the 18 Footers in Double Bay in June 2023 for their 40 year reunion. Many travelled from regional NSW, and several ladies travelled interstate from Brisbane and Melbourne. It was a fabulous day, with lots of happy memories shared. Thank you to Gerri Coy for organizing this event.
Class of 1993
On Saturday, 7 October, as part of our Alumnae Weekend, we welcomed the Class of 1993 back to Kincoppal-Rose Bay for their 30 year school reunion.
Ladies travelled from regional areas of NSW to attend the school tour and enjoyed refreshments on the Harbour Terrace afterwards.
Many of this group had not returned to KRB for several years and were impressed with the addition of the Maureen Tudehope Centre, the Yr 12 Learning Hub and the conversion of the Sheldon swimming pool into the decked and landscaped area for educational and recreational activities and learning.
Thank you to the organisers Pip Baker (Whalen) and Claudia McInerney (Killian).
Class of 2018
The Class of 2018 returned to school on the Alumnae Weekend to celebrate their 5 year reunion. It was wonderful to welcome back nearly 50 students from this year group. The school tour brought back lots of great memories and the students especially enjoyed visiting the Yr 12 Hub which was in it’s final stages of completion as they embarked on their HSC, five years ago.
After refreshments on the Harbour Terrace, the Class of 2018 regrouped at the Royal Hotel in Paddington.
Thank you to organiser Georgia Strain for co-ordinating this event.
Class of 2003
Our inaugural Alumnae weekend continued on Saturday, 7 October as we welcomed the Class of 2003 back to Kincoppal-Rose Bay for their 20 year reunion.
A large group enjoyed a tour of the school before moving to the Harbour Terrace for refreshments in the sunshine. Many attended from rural NSW and interstate with one Alumna managing to co-ordinate the reunion with a trip home from London to visit family. It was also wonderful to welcome our youngest ever attendee in baby Tom, not yet two months old !
The 2003 year group then continued their reunion celebrations at the Lord Dudley Hotel in Paddington.
Huge thanks to the organisers, Sophie Moran, Pip Simmons, Rebecca Page and Katherine Williams.
Class of 1998
The Class of 1998 gathered together for dinner and drinks at the Royal Oak on 23 October to celebrate 25 years since graduation from KRB. It was a great evening with lots of laughter and sharing of all the fun memories from our school days.
Class of 1986
The Class of 1986 finally got together to celebrate their 35 year (+ 2 year) school reunion on Sunday, 3 December. Over 50 ladies were in attendance. It was fabulous to have international guest Jo-Ann Chin (Foung) attend from Papua New Guinea. Jo-Ann had not been able to attend a reunion since graduation. We also welcomed several ladies from interstate and regional NSW. It was wonderful to hear from Dr Piera Kohout (Taylor) and Annabel Dominguez who spoke to the group after the lunch, sharing stories about the paths their lives have taken since leaving KRB. It was a truly special day and night rekindling friendships with plans already underway for our 40th year reunion celebration.
We would like to thank the Class of 1986 who have made donations, in the lead up to their reunion, to the Mary Shanahan Scholarship, The Indigenous Fund and the KRB Bursary program. These donations provide an opportunity for students whose families are in need of financial assistance to access general tuition, boarding, uniforms and/or laptops.
Our heartfelt thanks goes to Larissa Malouf (Hopkins) for her organization, kindness and generosity in hosting the reunion. Thank you to Justine Chubb (Lum), Victoria Dalton (Ryan), and Jane Lamming (Simons) for organizing the event.
