May 2004: The very first Alumni newsletter, Opportunity Knox, has been released!

Frank Knox Christmas Party 2004

The Fireside Room in Dudley House was the scene for the Knox Christmas Party in early December 2004. Without sounding too much like the Society Pages in a newspaper, "a marvellous time was had by all and the atmosphere was simply splendid". A groovy little swing-trio provided the background music as the Knoxes shared their plans for the Christmas break with each other eliciting varying degrees of jealousy.

The now-traditional Christmas Party Trivia Quiz (compiled and hosted by Bridgette Toy-Cronin) allowed the Knoxes to show off their incredible knowledge and ignorance in a number of fields. In the end, Trivia was the ultimate winner (as well as the Australian Knoxes!)

A big shout goes to Edmond Rhys-Jones, Danielle Malek and Bridgette Toy-Cronin for organising a truly lovely evening!
