Congratulations on your work in getting the reunion process off and running - I'm thoroughly enjoying the constant stream of nostalgic Emails!

Just a suggestion about the venue for any function: how would people feel about returning to the scene of (here insert 'our triumphs' and/or 'the crime', as appropriate) and having a catered function in the school hall? I'm pretty sure it's used for such things from time to time, and the current school authorities would no doubt (but mistakenly) feel that we're old enough to be trusted. Possibly some access to other parts of the place (if there's anything left from our days) could also be arranged!"

Wayne Ryan provides the following in case cv's are going to be compiled...:

"Following NSBHS, I found myself doing agricultural science at Sydney University, primarily I think on the basis of a Vocational Guidance recommendation which picked up on my interest in things rural. Unfortunately this interest was largely the result of holidays on a farm near Tamworth with a family including two delightful daughters, rather than any real interest in agriculture.

However, I found that I enjoyed the course once I started to specialise in agricultural economics and this led to a position in the then Bureau of Agricultural Economics in Canberra. After five years in commodity research positions, I was posted to London as an agricultural attache for three years.

Somewhat to my surprise, I then ended up spending my whole career in the Commonwealth agriculture department in its various guises in a range of policy advising/program administration positions concerned with domestic and export marketing of Australian food.. At the time of my retirement at the end of 1999, my main responsibilities were programs aimed at improving Australiaís export performance to Asia, particularly through improved supply chain management.

In 1969, I married Judy, a pharmacist, and we have two adult sons. Steven works for a Canberra Internet company and Trevor has now been in Japan for a bit over a year, teaching English after completing an Arts Law degree.

Over the past year, I have had a great time, including exploring parts of Australia I haven't seen before in our four wheel drive camping van and more time at our beach house at Broulee on the NSW south coast. Overseas beckons if the Australian dollar ever improves.

Long time member of the ALP, but find it difficult to maintain my rage when Gough and Malcolm cuddle up together."

Can I suggest that you should all feel free to e-mail to everyone if you have things to say (just copy the mailing list to circulate it)....?

regards to all (and keep lookign for lost bretheren...!)
