It’s been yet another busy period for the members of Southwood Old Boys whom are continue to make their mark professionally in a wide range of sectors and industries.
Recently Alan White (YG2008) was crowned the Young Australian Fundraiser of the Year for his work at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre raising funds to provide essential services and training and development programs for asylum seekers.
Following his award, Alan was also appointed to the Board of Directors at the Fundraising Institute of Australia where he will oversee initiatives to encourage more young people to come into the fundraising sector and offer guidance to younger members in the community about their careers.
Christian Fitzgerald (YG 2006) and his fiancée Marthe recently welcomed Leon Alexander Gogstad to the world. Arriving into the world on the evening of 9 May 2019, Leon is the first child for Christian and Marthe. Needless to say, both parents are over the moon to the new addition to their family.
Continuing on the baby news, Scott Peters (YG 2005) and wife Ashleigh welcomed their newest addition to their brood with the safe and healthy arrival of Noah on 9 November 2018. Weighing in at 4.2kg, Noah is Scott & Ashleigh’s second child with their eldest Harry taking on the role of big brother.
Love was in the air over the Easter period as Mark Razdan (YG2005) wed Natasha Gupta at Linley Estate. The event was well attended by alumni members with Ivan Yeung & Scott Peters (also YG 2005) a part of the bridal party. Other members in attendance were Daniel Griffiths, Sam Comben and Alex Simmons (YG2004).
As Mark had completed IB, several Tintern Girls Alumni members were also on hand to celebrate this momentous occasion.
It is with sadness we learnt that Sam L Morrison (YG 2008), brother of Felicity Morrison (YG 2004), Stefanie Morrison (YG 2001) and Amelia Morrison (YG 1999 Dec.) passed away earlier in the year. On behalf of all members, SOBA wishes to extend their deepest condolences to the Morrison family and friends of Sam in this difficult time.
