The results have just come through from today's sports exchange with St Bernard's in the Hutt Valley. They read as
1st XV - 49 to 3 win
Senior A Basketball - 61 to 32 win
1st XI Football - 5 to 2 loss
So at least 2/3rds of the bus will be happy on the way home this evening.
We have just got our hands on this photo from Brother Oliver's 100th. Pictured are all the Kiwi Brothers in attendance - Br Adrian, Br Jack, Br Will, Br Pat, Br Steve, Br David and, of course, Br Oliver. All these fine gentlemen have done significant "time" at FDMC and it was great that they could be there for the great occasion.
Past Principal Br Peter Ryan is in town for the first few days of this week and is busy catching up with lots of people, including a few old boys. Br Peter is currently the Principal at Oakhill College in Sydney and it is his first trip back to NP since the 50th Jubilee. If you se him around be sure to stop and say hello.
Having been given the day off from training it was good of Conrad and Beaudy to pop up to their old school and say hello. Having spent morning tea with the staff they did an impromptu classroom tour with Acting Principal Chris Moller which was greatly enjoyed by the students.
Tomorrow it is back to the grindstone for the two but they can be assured there will be plenty of support on the sidelines come Saturday, no matter what numbers they have on their backs.
Sad news in this morning in the Daily News with the notice of old boy Claude Wuest's death. Claude was at the college in the 1980's and left us at the far to young an age of 44 years. He has been farming in Winton.
Please keep Claude and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
