2022 Combined SMOGA Reunion Weekend with ROBA



NB: ROBA have a separate programme which connects with the SMOGA programme at times:


Friday 3rd June 2022 –Cocktail Evening.

5:30 PM Bus Transport leaves Solway Park for Rathkeale. Ask your Year Group Facilitator about other possible pick-up points in Masterton.

6:00 PM Function starts in the Rathkeale Dining Hall. During the evening School minivans can take people back into town.

10:00 PM The main bus departs for town. If transport is wanted for places further South e.g., Greytown please let me know.

SMOGA will cover cost of the main bus transport, but the mini vans will probably be driven by tutors who always appreciate a dollar or two!

Husbands and partners, and long serving staff are all welcome. Cost per head is $25 payable by Eftpos or exact cash amount at the door. This covers drinks and food and is subsidised by SMOGA.

All Facilitators are invited/expected to say a few words and accept a thank you for work done. Dress for Friday is usually smart casual although a few old school colours ties and blazers tend to appear! 


Saturday 4th June 2022 – Morning.

9:00 AM Chapel for Absent Friends for SMOGA Old Girls in the St Matthew’s School Chapel and conducted by School Chaplain Wendy Smyth. It would be great to have this well attended. Husbands etc are always welcome.

11:00 AM School tours via some old haunts!! 

1:00 PM Lunch at Rathkeale courtesy of the College – no cost to attendees.

1.30 PM Tour of Rathkeale for St Matthew's Old Girls.


The rest of the afternoon and evening is planned by Year Group Facilitators. We need to be kept abreast of numbers attending – please inform your Year Group Facilitators asap – so that we can react accordingly with catering and transport planning


Sunday 5th June 2022.

No official activity. However, in past years some groups have met for brunch before heading home.⭐️
