Vintage Club Reunion
The Vintage Club is open to all Old Boys who left the School 50 years ago or more, and celebrates the strong connection that so many of our Old Boys have maintained – both with each other and with the School – over decades. Each year in November, the Club meets to reminisce, connect with current students, tour the School grounds and enjoy a Chapel Service, lunch in the Dining Hall, Senior School Assembly and afternoon tea together.

**Last Post Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial
At the end of each day, commencing at 4.55 pm, the Memorial farewells visitors with its moving Last Post Ceremony. The ceremony begins with the singing of the Australian National Anthem, followed by the poignant strains of a Lament, played by a piper. Visitors are invited to lay wreaths and floral tributes beside the Pool of Reflection. The Roll of Honour in the Cloisters lists the names of more than 102,000 Australians who have given their lives in war and other operations over more than a century. At each ceremony the story behind one of these names will be told. The Ode is then recited, and the ceremony ends with the sounding of the Last Post.
A wreath will be laid on behalf of the Vintage Club in remembrance of all CGS Fallen Soldiers.
Invitations will be sent out via post and email in late August 2016.
