New College Alumni Reunion Held In Singapore

A group of Singapore ex-Collegians hosted a small Alumni reunion in late April 2008.

Emily and Julian Teoh and Dan and Allison Parker in Singapore hosted a small reunion on Saturday 26 April (a belated ANZAC day celebration) for ex-New Collegians. Singapore Alumni from all years (and their partners) were invited to attend. The event was held at Emily and Julian Teoh’s house in Novena. Here we include a brief summary of the night written by Emily Teoh (nee Macpherson) (New College 2001-2004).

On a hot Saturday evening in April, a small group of Singapore-based New Collegians gathered for a dinner and reunion. A decade worth of New Collegians were in attendance, many of whom had never met each other, but looking at the group it would have been impossible to tell! In typical Singapore style we dined on satay, chicken and rice … combined with damper, homemade Anzac biscuits and Arnotts biscuits.

Along with the gathering coinciding with Anzac day, it was also the birthdays of Julian Teoh and Alison Parker (nee Teo) (pictured with birthday gifts). We broke with New College tradition, and did not attempt any basining or bucketings to celebrate this event.Instead, we delighted in reliving many cherished memories of our College days, and Jo-An Goh – who had recently visited Sydney – was able to share with the group about the renovations and building work at New.

From all reports it was a wonderful evening, and the College hope there will be many more of them. See photos.
