Dear ex-James Rusians -
Those of you who attended James Ruse during the 1960's or 1970's may remember Colin Anderson who was an English teacher at the school and who collaborated with Leslie Lino in the initiation of the annual school musicals still held to this day.    He was a towering figure in the school at the time but sadly he passed away on 8 July.   I have included a copy of his Sydney Morning Herald notice below with details of his memorial service to be held in Newcastle on Tuesday.
I expect that a lot more about Col will appear on the James Ruse Union website and Gesta non Verba in due course, but I have sent this quick email now to warn out as many people as possible about his memorial service on Tuesday.   Any inquiries re the service can be directed to the funeral directors.
