ASOPA Class of 1966-67 plans its second (and last?) reunion


2017 marks 50 years since the graduation of the 1966-67 education officers’ class of the Australian School of Pacific Administration (ASOPA).

Between 1949 and 1973, ASOPA was the primary training venue for teachers, patrol officers and other professionals to serve in Papua New Guinea and other Australian territories.

After a successful reunion in the ASOPA surrounds in Mosman, Sydney, in February 2014, the Class of 1966-67 is scheduling a second gathering on 17-19 October 2017 at the Avoca Beach Hotel & Resort on the NSW Central Coast.

In 2014, 66 people attended that first reunion, including 34 ex-students, several lecturers, guests and significant others. We hope they all make it again.

We also invite anyone who has TPNG experiences in the past and would like to share their adventures with like-experienced ‘chalkies’.

An amount of just $305 per person twin share will get you two nights accommodation, five meals and a six-hour scenic bus tour with interesting visits and a lunch stop. A single supplement costs $338 (an extra $33).

We encourage you to register earlier rather than later to make this a successful event.

For detailed information of the reunion package, forward a request to Tony Mikus at [email protected] or call/message him on 0420 868 368.
