ROGU Luncheon - 2016

The annual ROGU Luncheon was held on Saturday 7 May 2016.

ROGU held its annual luncheon and AGM on Saturday 7 May 2016.

Nearly a hundred old Rhenishers gathered at the hostel to reacquaint themselves with the revamped premises, to reconnect with old friends, to catch up on events in each other’s lives and to bear witness to the spirit of Rhenish.

There were Old Girls’ representing each of the decades, spanning the period from the 1940s to the present day.  It was a particularly important reunion for the class of 1986 who celebrated the 30th anniversary of their final year at Rhenish.

Ms Fourie provided an incredible three course meal, the likes of which is not an every day occurence in the hostel dining hall, but the sounds of laughter and chatting over a shared meal were no different from any other meal enjoyed by the girls at those tables down the years.

The old girls were charmed by the gracious welcome they received from the Learner Council and the ease with which these young ladies mingled with their older 'sisters', sharing and invoking shared memories.  Priyanka Govender and Okara Opara's hearfelt speech had many a head nodding in agreement and a heart swelling with pride at the wonderful, strong, compassionate and considered young women that Rhenish Girls' continues to produce.

ROGU is a vital part of Rhenish and every girl privileged enough to attend Rhenish should give some thought to becoming an active member of ROGU on leaving school so that she remains a member of the Rhenish community forever and gives life to the saying “Once a Rhenisher, Always a Rhenisher”.
