EX-STUDENTS and friends travelled from right across NSW and Victoria to attend the 26th reunion of Bathurst High School's Class of 1953.
Marie Ford and Jim Grives again organised the reunion at the Bathurst City Community Club where former school captains Arthur Baillie (1949) and Ian Beardwood (1953) led the singing of the school song.
Mr Beardwood organised the first reunion on Saturday, December 27, 1969 and, after the 15th reunion in 1997, passed the baton Ms Ford and Mr Grives.
Saturday's reunion also marked 50 years since the first Class of '53 catch-up.
The next reunion, booked for March 13, 2021, will be open to all ex-students.
