As the Prep Grade 7 boys of 2013 and our Grade 3 girls of 2009 gathered together for a memorable celebration of their time at Prep, it was a nostalgic evening with many memorable times shared, much laughter, delicious food and fantastic company. And, of course, the traditional Monkey Dorm Races to end off the evening.
In his speech, 2013 Headboy Peter Jarvis pointed out how well and how far Preppies have gone in College and he attributes much of this to the foundations laid and the enthusiasm garnered during their time at Prep.
Most of the 2013 Senior 8 leadership group have gone on to take up leadership roles at St Andrew’s College. Going from a small fish in a small pond, these Preppies showed that they had what it takes to shine in a much bigger and more competitive pond.
