Warracknabeal classmates gather for reunion

PUPILS who attended St Mary's Catholic Primary School at Warracknabeal in the 1940s and 1950s returned to the region on Wednesday for a reunion.

About 35 former students travelled from across the country for the event in Horsham.

Organiser Liz Ryan said the day came together well, despite short notice.

"We did it all in a month," she said.

"It was for students who went to school in the late 1940s and early 1950s."

Mrs Ryan said it was great to catch up with old classmates.

"Most of them were boarders at the school and some I hadn't seen in 50 years," she said.

Mrs Ryan said they also had a reunion last year, but only with eight people.

"We then decided to have another one and we started out with about 10 to 15 people coming it just got bigger from there," she said.

People travelled from Perth, Melbourne, Swan Hill, Wangaratta and Mildura for the reunion.
