Parent Network News

Last Thursday morning the school gym was filled with the sounds of 500 fathers and sons sharing breakfast.  The 2019 Father’s Day Breakfast sold out in record time and was once again an enormous success; a great celebration of the important role our dads and male carers play in the lives of our students.

Our guest speaker, Old Collegian Mr Mark George (Class of 1983), spoke of how the relationship with his father and their shared love for the outdoors has led him to conquer incredible journeys to the remotest parts of the world. Mark’s story was very inspirational and acknowledged the influence that his father had on him from an early age.

Thank you to everyone who made this event such a success. In particular, thank you to the following people:

  • Letecya Stacey for her amazing job in coordinating the breakfast
  • James McEniry for arranging an incredible array of great prizes for the raffle (all 33 of them!), which raised $940
  • Michelle Peterson and Lou Harris for their super creative table decorations
  • Angela Carlino for once again providing fabulous administrative support
  • Our guest speaker, Mark George
  • The College Leaders who led the event in a very professional manner
  • The College Maintenance Team for their assistance in setting up and packing up the gym
  • All of the volunteers who helped to set-up, serve and clean up afterwards

We encourage you to click here to have a look at a Photo Gallery of some of the wonderful photographs taken on the morning, and the moving speech made by College Captain, Liam Jenkins.

We also thank the following sponsors for their generous donations of prizes for our raffle:
