On 29 March 2017, it was Warrane old boy Tim Edwards that was guest speaker for the Wednesday night dinner. Grateful and excited to be back, he told the residents that his one regret from his Warrane days was treating the place as a hotel for the first 12 weeks out of his almost six-year stay. 12 weeks seems a small part, but he wished he had gotten involved, and therefore enjoyed himself more, right from the start!

For Junya Eguchi, the experience of living at Warrane College is something he describes as life-changing.

When Jim Macnamara, Professor of Public Communication at the University of Technology Sydney, spoke to the Warrane boys on 22 March 2017, it was all about listening. He told them that just as listening is so important on an interpersonal level, it is also important at an organisational level – a particular interest of his.

James Curran may be a professor of history at Sydney University, but when he visited Warrane on Wednesday 8 March, he kept it very current. As someone who teaches courses in Australian political culture and foreign policy, as well as the history of America's relations with the world, what do you think his topic of choice was? None other than the Donald Trump, President of the USA – and what his election might mean for Australia

“What makes for a successful life?”’ was the question that Damien Tudehope, the Liberal Member for the seat of Epping, posed to the Warrane boys at the Wednesday Formal Dinner on 1 March 2017. Would it be earning a lot of money; achieving great status; having a good circle of friends? These could all be part of it, he suggested, but certainly not all of it.

If your stereotypical medical student doesn’t have time for anything apart from university, then 25-year old Liam Clifford just isn’t that guy. While he’s been studying hard for seven years at UNSW – three years of medical science, first class honours the following year, and then three years of undergraduate medicine after that – this Warrane resident manages to fit in a whole lot more.

Whether you know him as Will or Bill, you can’t deny that William Horspool’s hometown has the best names – he hails from Dark Corner Road in the village of Sunny Corner. There surely can only be few reasons to leave a place that sounds so pleasant, but William’s will do the trick: he’s residing at Warrane to do his PhD.

Keen to know why Warrane residents, Patrick and David Tighe, seem to be made of good stuff? We’re guessing there must be something in the water of their hometown of Coonabarabran. Or perhaps there’s something in the stars, because this country town, 500 kilometres north-west of NSW, happens to be the astronomy capital of Australia.

Do you think that personal faith should play a part in politics? It’s the kind of discussion you’d probably avoid at a friendly dinner party, but it was exactly what Bay Warburton spoke about to the Warrane boys on Wednesday 5 October 2016. And he should know all about it, considering that he’s a practicing Christian as well as Chief of Staff for NSW Premier, Mike Baird.
