It is always a special moment when two Old Boys catch up decades on.
Members will be well aware of the eternal debt former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his brother, Greg, acknowledge they owe the Marist Brothers. Kevin and Greg were provided with free boarding and education at Ashgrove following the tragic death of their father. A truly Marist response.
More recently, an excited OB Danny Robertson (1972), attended at Kevin’s book launch and caught up with Kevin. Recalling the kindness the Marist Brothers had shown his family, Kevin signed the book ‘Viriliter Age’ and reminded Danny it was important to always “act like a man”.
Wise words indeed.
