January 2016 - Old Pauline Newsletter
 
 
Welcome to the January issue of the Old Pauline Club eNews.

Welcome to our first e-newsletter of 2016. We hope you had an enjoyable winter break and are as excited as we are for the year ahead. Here at the Old Pauline Club we’re eagerly planning this year's activities including a Finance Dinner and the Annual Dinner for which we are delighted to be welcoming Professor the Lord Winston of Hammersmith (1954-59) as guest speaker (see announcement below).

We are also planning a summer of reunions in 2016, so if you’d like to organise your own, like the
1955 Rugby team or our Sydney Branch, or would like to be involved in the reunions already planned for this summer (Classes of ’76, ’86, ’91, ’96, ’06 or ’11) then please get in touch.
