Reuniting to celebrate Bialik College’s 75th Anniversary
Bialik College alumni, past and present staff were given the opportunity to reunite at the Mega Reunion held recently as part of the College’s Celebration Week.
Guests reminisced whilst exploring the school’s Heritage Exhibition, enjoying the interactive displays and revelling in the incredible growth of Melbourne’s first Jewish Day School, which opened its doors 75 years ago as a kindergarten in Drummond Street, Carlton. Since then, Bialik has flourished and grown to become home to more than 1000 students and their extended families. The College has a legacy of strong academic performance, being in the state’s top five VCE schools for 19 of the past 20 years and in 2016, was first in the state of Victoria.
“Bialik is a community school dedicated to both excellence and menschlichkeit” says Principal Jeremy Stowe-Lindner, who joined the school in 2012. “It is the school’s family atmosphere and values and its inclusive ethos that respects diversity of Jewish identity whilst remaining strongly Zionist that continues to reflect the vision of its early founders.”
