1964/65 Reunion

Last month, a reunion of the veterinary students’ intake of 1964 and 1965 took place. The reunion was held in Dunedin, the wildlife capital of New Zealand, and the programme reflected this with visits to the albatross colony at Taiaroa Head on the peninsular and the Orokonui eco-sanctuary further inland.

This group have held reunions previously which are always well attended, the 2021 reunion being no exception!  27 veterinarians and partners were in attendance, including the first two female veterinary students at Massey, Cheryll Bell (nee Knox) and Jan Fogg.
