Morning Tea in Memory of Alan McMillan

Thursday, September 08, 2022

It was with great sadness that the Antonine College community learnt of the passing of Mr Alan McMillan, one of the longest serving members of staff, over the summer holidays. The news of his death was a shock to us all. Mr McMillan had just been acknowledged for his twenty years of teaching at Cedar Campus the previous December and was well respected by staff and students alike. His contribution to the College not only included his many years as a classroom teacher, but also as a visual arts leader and dance choreographer. Although it is eight months since he passed away, he is still sorely missed by those who knew him.

The staff and students taught by Mr McMillan were a very special part of his life and his family loved hearing his stories about life at Antonine College and decided they wanted to do something for the Cedar Campus Library in his memory. Mr McMillan’s brothers and sisters – Irene Griffith, Margaret Cambridge, Tommy McMillan, and David McMillan, as well as a close friend Frank Thexton, kindly donated $1200 so that books could be purchased for the students to share in the celebration of his life and contribution to the College.

On Thursday, 8 September, Cedar Campus staff welcomed Alan’s family and friend to tour the school and attend a special morning tea in memory of Mr McMillan. It was a wonderful opportunity to personally thank them for their generous donation and to view the books that have been purchased and are now available in the library for the students to borrow.
