Always nice to host an Old Boy musician, Mr Rob Connelly (Class of 1954/55), and to have him play the school’s historic heraldic trumpets with current music teacher, and trumpeter, Mr Dan Johnson. Dan had been commissioned to write a new fanfare for the 2020 Bicentenary Celebrations using the three trumpets which had been used by Westmead Boys Home as well as PMH. Fortior Ito (6 March 2019)
1960 – 3rd Year School Cadets Singleton
“My name is Robert Klein-Schiphorst and reside in Townsville, North Queensland having done so since 1968. I am an ex student of Marist Brothers Parramatta High School from mid 1958 through to 1962 completing 5th Year, Leaving Certificate ( year 12 today). Recently whilst browsing through our photo albums with grandchildren came across two old School photographs. Copies of which are attached.
One was taken in 1960 third year school cadets at a school cadet camp in Singleton, what I can remember of it, it was bitterly cold but a lot of fun. I am on the left hand end of the four shown but can’t place a name to the familiar faces of the others to the right.”
