We wanted to provoke some reminiscing of years gone by, so we're going to dig into the St Bernard's College Archives and fish out some memories! We'd love it if you have photos from your time at St Bernard's and would be willing to send them in to share with us!
With the 1997, 25 Year Reunion later today - lets get topical!
Nobel Prize winner Peter Doherty is named Australian of the Year, Melbourne's HM Prison Pentridge is closed, the Michael Caton classic film The Castle is released!

The St Bernard's College Foundation has a proud tradition of offering Bursaries and Scholarships to students at St Bernard's College.
Bursaries help those families who otherwise would not be in a position to send their son to St Bernard's College due to hardship or unforeseen circumstances.
Scholarships reward those who excel in particular fields whether that be academics, sport, or the arts, the Foundation wishes to acknowledge the achievements of these students.
Your contribution to the St Bernard's College Scholarship and Bursary Fund ensures that the College Foundation can continue to support these students. Your donation will have a direct impact on students at the College today and will play some part in shaping the men of tomorrow.
Your gift may also provide you with tax savings. The St Bernard's College Foundation Scholarship and Bursary Fund has DGR status so all gifts over $2 are fully tax deductible. For more information CLICK HERE
On Thursday, 19 May, the staff of St Bernard's College gathered in the New Street Staff Room to celebrate the World's Biggest Morning Tea!
With plenty of home-made baked goods on offer, the donations rolled in thick and fast.
On Friday 20 May we gathered as a College for the High Achiever's Assembly to recognise student academic success during 2021. It was a fantastic morning to be able to host some of our newest Old Collegians as they returned to the College. To highlight a few of the achievements presented,
Mr Willian Garvey, the College DUX for 2021 who achieved an impressive 98.0 ATAR.
Mr Joel Saxton was awarded the John O Connor Award
Congratulations to all students in what was a particularly challenging year.
