Alumni reunite at the Vice-Chancellor's Morning Tea

11 December 2012

One hundred alumni from many different faculties recently attended the annual Vice-Chancellor's Morning Tea in the University's Great Hall.

Held this year on Thursday 29 November, the Morning Tea was a special event for alumni who graduated prior to 1959, providing the opportunity to meet new friends and reunite with old classmates whilst sharing in the memories of their time on campus. It was also an opportunity for our alumni to direct questions to the Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Dr Michael Spence, as he conducted a Q&A session following his keynote address.

Music in particular was celebrated on the day, with a sensational organ solo performed by University of Sydney Organist and Carillonist Amy Johansen, followed by performances from the Sydney University Musical Society (SUMS) of Locus Iste by Bruckner and Laudete Nomen Domini by Christopher Tye. Alumni were encouraged to join a sing-along to Gaudeamus Igitur, the traditional university student's hymn, to bring the morning to a close.

The Vice-Chancellor's Morning Tea will take place again next year, with dates released closer to the event.
