Save the Date for The Day at the Races – 19 August 2017

The Parent Network’s major fundraising event for 2017, A Day at the Races at Caulfield Racecourse, is now to be held on Saturday 19 August due to Melbourne Racing Club availability.

College‐run events provide an excellent opportunity for you to get involved, meet other parents and play a key role in building a strong school community, so be sure to put this date in your calendar!

We need your help please!

In preparation for A Day at the Races, the Parent Network would love to hear from anyone who may be interested in being a member of the fundraising sub‐committee. To register your interest please email:

Similar to last year, as part of this major fundraising event, the Parent Network will be establishing an online auction via which will run from mid year until Race Day. More details will follow shortly, but in the meantime please start thinking about products, services and vouchers which you, your business or your broader network may be willing to donate for the auction. Donations will be acknowledged within the College community and the broader community in various forms such as newsletters, our webpage and the College Facebook page. This presents an excellent opportunity for you to promote your business. Please contact us at with any enquiries or donation offers. Thank you in anticipation of your support.
