Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 15th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 16, 2009 MB NEWS Reunion bittersweet FIONA BRADY Former student of CBS Burwood Kevin Lawn (centre) with wife Eileen and principal Damien Carlton. MORE than 500 old boys of Christian Brothers Col- lege in Burwood were re- united at the school's cen- tenary celebration. College principal Damien Carlton said the Back to Burwood event held on March 15 was a great success. Present-day students ushered visitors through a registration process and then to meeting points to help old friends find each other. An extensive display of memorabilia, including photos, trophies and old uniforms, was displayed in the college hall. Many ex-students like Gerald Perkins, 95, and Kevin Lawn, 94, who left school in the late 1920s, said there had been quite a few changes at the col- lege since their schooldays. Sadly, the school's 100th year will also be its last. The college will close its doors in December due to falling enrolments. Announcing the closure in April last year, the Sydney Archdiocesan Catholic Schools blamed the closure on the number of Catholic high schools vying for a declining pool of school-age students. A vocational training college will be established on the site. A Centenary Mass will be held in St Mary's Ca- thedral on June 21, fol- lowed by the Centenary Dinner at Rosehill Race- course on August 15. Details: 9747 4211 or www. cbc.burwood.catholic.ed- u.au. Spotlight on heritage SHIREEN KHALIL A DAY of free entertain- ment for Heritage Week will be held in Woodstock Com- munity Centre on Saturday, April 18. On the billing, at the heritage-listed venue, will be an inspirational talk from the heritage and en- vironmental campaigner Jack Mundey. Mr Mundey is known for his pioneering work in the preservation of both the natural and man-made en- vironment. The children can look for- ward to posing for photos in cut-outs of period charac- ters, as well as enjoying a free sausage sizzle. Some of Burwood's long- standing residents will de- liver accounts of their most poignant memories against a beautiful backdrop of photographs depicting the municipality's past and present. Mayor Lesley Furneaux- Cook is encouraging famil- ies to celebrate. ''Heritage Week is the per- fect opportunity for families to get together and share stories whilst having fun at the same time,'' Cr Furneaux-Cook said. ''Burwood is steeped in history and it's both fun and interesting to delve into the past.'' Earlier in the week St Thomas' church in Enfield invited residents to explore the cemetery . . . after dark. The celebrations began on Tuesday with spine-chilling twilight tours of St Thomas' Church and cemetery. The tour guide, dressed in period robes, lit the way with her oil lamp as she revealed some of the deepest, darkest secrets of Burwood's former resi- dents. Other guided tours in- cluded St Paul's Church in Burwood and the iconic Santa Sabina College build- ing. Cr Furneaux-Cook, who recently explored the church and cemetery, said it gave an amazing insight into the municipality's first families. ''Behind every name on every headstone is a story, and some of the stories are absolutely fascinating,'' she said.
