Danielle came first in the competition for creating a kit to help women understand how to examine themselves for signs of breast cancer.

Can anyone help Jehudo? My name is Jehudo Elzas and I graduated from Wesley College in ‘67. I spent 12 years at Wesley, first in Tullamaine and after in St Stephens Green. At present I live in Toronto (45 years) and would like to know if anyone from that year lives in North America. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Jehudo, I remember you very well! I live in Hampton NB. It is a small town just outside Saint John.
I am a good bit younger than you as I left Wesley (Ballinteer) at the end of 5th year (81) knowing I would fail my leaving. I am also in the GTA for the last 7 years with my family, presently on the edge of Brampton and Norval. Hit me up if you want to, as they say over here and any other Wesleyites for that matter.
Hi Jehudo - my Mum, Cherry Sleeman was in your year in Wesley. Her brother Bruce Buttimore finished the year after and also lives in Toronto!
I remember a Nathan Elzas.... is that you? Do you remember me (Billy Butt) I used to go to Maccabi golf club with Brian Davidson on Sundays and Colin Simon and I were friends.... also a guy called Rozenblatt. There are several ex Wesley people living in North America. I will make up a list for you if you give me your e.mail address. Send it to my e.mail: email@example.com
Hi again! If you want to contact me my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I be very happy to hear from you!
We received the following photos and message from Ann Brownlee. Do you recognize anyone?
I graduated in 1967. I was on the 1st eleven all the way through school. In ‘64 we won the Junior Cup. In ‘66 and ‘67 we got to the final of the Senior Cup but failed to win either game. The photo that was in the Irish Times is of Hilary Bower (Edge) and myself taken at, what I think, was the Spring Fair maybe in ‘63 or ‘64. The class photo was probably taken in ‘66. I was in 5b that year. My years at Wesley we’re some of my happiest and o have so many terrific memories of my time there. Ann Brownlee ... See MoreSee Less
