Parent Network News

Here we are again well into another school year with Term 3 upon us.

Almost sixty parents and friends enjoyed the Winter Luncheon held late last term with a beautiful two course meal being served by the Racecourse Hotel. It was a warm gathering and seating was arranged so that parents sat with other parents of boys in the same year level.

We all enjoyed an afternoon away from work and had many laughs comparing notes about the boys and their studies, leisure time pursuits and generally getting to know one-another.

Our special guests were Peter and Cate Houlihan and Norhana Stipic, our guest speaker, who delighted us with her stories about her life as a young girl growing up in Brunei.


A Day’s Racing — Don’t miss out

A reminder about our Race Day on Saturday 15 August. Last year’s event was a fantastic day out and we look forward to the Myer Fashion Parade and MC Jim Russell, best known for appearing in the sketch comedy television series Comedy Inc. He has also featured in numerous Australian films, sitcoms and dramas and is the father of one of the Year 6 boys. Tickets are selling fast, don’t miss out!
