Trinity News : July 2008
ALUMNI OTU “BACK TO TRINITY DAY” | SATURDAY 14 JUNE 2007 Saturday June 14 saw a double barrelled event for the OTU in that it was Back to Trinity Day during the day, and the Class of 1983 held its twenty-fifth Reunion Dinner in the evening. The many Old Boys who attended the Back-To-Trinity spent the time watching the Firsts and Second matches in Rugby and Football, and in the after match function in the Delmar Gallery had much discussion of the day’s matches, comparing them to their own deeds of derring-do when they themselves were young and fit schoolboys! It was an enjoyable occasion indeed. The ’83 Reunion Dinner was held in the Dining Hall, where again much reminiscing about those “days of fresh air in the rain and the sun” took place. Such reunions are most companionable, and though time may affect the accuracy of the recollections made, the reliving of various episodes and events of School days always make for a great evening’s entertainment!
