Celebrating a milestone birthday with Lesley

On Saturday 20 June, alumna Lesley Falloon OAM (nee Keipert) celebrated her 100th birthday at home with an endless parade of socially distanced visitors and well wishers. Our Advancement Manager, Sam Hawkins, presented Lesley with a gift on behalf of the College to commemorate her milestone birthday.

Lesley was one of the very first students to reside at University Women’s College (UWC) in 1938. Lesley grew up in Rapunyup and moved to Melbourne to study at the University of Melbourne. She graduated in 1941 with a Bachelor of Science. To this day, her close circle of friends still consists of a lot of her fellow residents from UWC in the late thirties and early forties. 

Many of you may recall being regaled by Lesley’s stories about life at UWC at College events throughout the years – we are looking forward to being able to welcome this living legend back to share her passion for her time at College. On behalf of the UC community we’d like to wish Lesley happy birthday!
