Hopewood House the magnificent home of Archibald Prize winner Tim Storrier AM (67) and his lovely wife Janet was the setting for a wonderful morning tea in the Southern Highlands town of Bowral for Old Boys and their wives/partners on Wednesday 16 March 2016.
Hosted by the Community Relations Manager Rick Clive (68) and the Community Chaplain Nick Foord (80), 25 people took the advantage of the special invitation in attending what was promoted as a ‘Relaxed Friendship Morning Tea’ in the beautiful surroundings that adorn Hopewood House.
The occasion brought together new faces that had not attended the inaugural gathering two years ago and rekindled for many friendships gained from that occasion.
Both Rick and Nick gave short speeches on the work they are doing on behalf of the OBU and the School in relation to Pastoral Care while Rick informed the gathering that the School was in good hands and that the boys had completed a clean sweep of the rowing at the recent GPS Head of the River.
To complete the formalities Janet gave a brief outline on the history of Hopewood House before Rick presented both Janet and Tim with a gift in thanking them for their kind hospitality in offering to hold the event at Hopewood. Many took the opportunity to visit Tim’s wonderful Art Gallery before leaving.
It is hoped that the event will be repeated in 2017.
