With winter upon us, I’m pleased to let everyone know that there is a swathe of events in the calendar for the next six months. Overseas, it’s also great to hear of solid turnouts at the recent gatherings in New York on 21 June and in London on 27 June, with the Headmaster attending in person.
First up, on Wednesday 17 August is the long-awaited return of The Great Debate, which we are planning to hold, in person, in the Alastair Mackerras Theatre (AMT). Please stay tuned for more information.
Next, is the Annual Old Sydneians Long Lunch to be held at the Royal Automobile Club of Australia on Thursday 25 August. Places are limited and we expect a sell-out so don’t delay! Ticketing will be open in the second week of July and further information will be circulated to all Old Sydneians prior to that time. Stay tuned.
Then, it is with great personal delight that I can inform those from 1987 and 1988 years that the GPS Gold Challenge is back after a two-year delay due to COVID-19. It will be held over two days on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October (October Long Weekend), this time at The King’s School. More information will be sent out shortly. However, if you are interested in participating, please contact your respective year convenors via the emails below:

Last but not least, the Annual Golf Day will be held in October – date to be confirmed, at the beautiful and ‘sometimes treacherous’ Coast Golf Club. More details will be circulated in the next Newsletter about this event.
