110th OLA Annual Dinner

On Friday 19 April, we warmly welcomed back nearly 100 Old Lyonians (OL) for our 110th Annual Dinner. Our Head, Mrs. Rose Hardy opened the dinner with a gracious welcome, highlighting the importance of the partnership between the Old Lyonian Association (OLA) and the School.

During the event our OL’S enjoyed a trip down memory lane with a tour of the School led by Lower and Upper Sixth prefects: Asan (U6QAC), Ismael (U6REM), Wesley (L6PWM), and Jack (L6JCC). As they strolled through familiar halls, the alumni shared fond memories and marvelled at the changes since their time at the School.

The tour was followed by a wonderful three course meal, which was enjoyed by all as they caught up with old friends and current staff, sharing stories from their endeavours following John Lyon.

It was a wonderful evening for all who attended, and Mr. Paul Matarewicz (OLA President and OL 1976) reflected on the growing engagement of OL’s, which was evident in the large number in attendance.

We look forward to building on the success from this event as we continue to work towards increasing the School’s engagement with its alumni.
