JANUARY 23, 2012
The peacefulness of a school on vacation was broken on Saturday the 21st January as visitors descended on Calvin Christian School to celebrate ‘Back to School’, part of Calvin’s 50th Jubilee Celebration. Visitors came from far and wide: from Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and the Netherlands former students came to renew old friendships and see how Calvin has grown over the years.
Old Scholars were joined by current Calvin families, former and present staff members and friends of the school, and visitors enjoyed a sunny day jam-packed with activities, including classroom displays, games including Old Scholar sports matches, jumping castle and face painting, the cutting of the 50th birthday cake, and displays of memorabilia and historical photographs. The 50th Jubilee Celebration art exhibition showcased paintings, photographs and sculptures produced by Old Scholars and staff members. A sausage sizzle and plentiful quantities of the ever popular oliebollen, provided sustenance for the lively conversations enjoyed by visitors throughout the day.
