St Vincent’s Westmead #2

by Graham Evans (guest author) on 23 September, 2011

Graham Evans shares a photograph of the St Vincent’s choir in 1962. Graham is standing at the far left of the front row. Graham’s role in the choir was lead singer (ensuring that all the boys stayed in tune) and drummer.

  1. WAS AT ST VINNIES AT THE AGE OF 10 IN 1974 TO 1977 IM LOOKING FOR OLD MATES STEVE H. M. S. IAN H. FERNANDO V . IS THERE A WAY OF CONTACTING THEM . LIKE A CONTACT LIST THANKS.

  2. Hi Adam,
    I am so sorry to have to edit the names of your friends when you are understandably seeking to re-connect. It’s necessary for privacy reasons. Also due to the shame that many Forogtten Australians were made to feel about their time in ‘care’, some have not told others/loved ones of their past and the National Museum needs to respect that decision. I hope that I have left enough information there for those who remember you to identify themselves.

    Thank you so much for contributing to the website.

    Best wishes,
    Adele

  3. Sorry Adam my stay was a little earlier, 1962 to April 1966, but if you need any help with sourting things out, I may be able to help. I took on the Church and four other Marist Brothers back in 2004 and got what they call an ex gratia settlement, a complementary gift with out acknowledgement, nothing what we were owed by them for our sufferings of abuse. You can get my email off Adele as I have given permission for those who went to this place if they needed to contact me in relation of the Institution, regards Graham Evans
