Collin Jeffery was a pupil at Walhampton from 1957 - 1960.  Here's his one minute update:

Where do you live and how long have you lived there? 

We live near a Town called Bridgetown in the South West of Western Australia; I have lived here longer than I have lived anywhere else that being about 35 years.

What did you want to be ‘when you grew up’ and what is your current occupation? 

I was to join our family business as an Auctioneer, Estate Agent, Valuer and Surveyor. I am now a famer (stud Dorper Sheep) and a fencing contractor.

What is your favourite memory from school…

The experience that I remember is one of a huge family. The staff knew every child by name and atmosphere was one of support and fun for kids. I loved the grounds and I also enjoyed a successful time with my sport; especially Rugby. The annual trips to Scotland were also a highlight.
