1957 Alumni Reunion Lunch

Dr Jennifer McDonald with UWC alumni from 1957

Head of College, Dr Jennifer McDonald welcomed back seven alumni from 1957 for lunch in the Heritage Room on Monday 2 October, 2017.

Reminiscing of times spent in the College hallways and lessons learnt from then Head of College, Myra Roper, provided much conversation for the ladies; some of whom have stayed in close contact over the years, others who had not seen each other in some time.

Sharing stories of family, career, travel and academia since living together, the ladies also took in the new Syme Dining Hall and Mural Room at College as part of a post-lunch tour. The College garden during spring is always a highlight with plants and trees now going into full bloom.

“Being a girl, moving down to Melbourne from the country – you thought, ‘Wow, I’ve made it’ as you walked through those front doors at College. It really was a wonderful opportunity we were given and I’ll be forever grateful.” Elaine Head (UWC 1957-59)
