PFA Welcome Evening

The Parents & Friends Association (PFA) was thrilled with the attendance at the PFA Welcome Evening on Friday 16 February 2024 with over 300 parents joining us for a fantastic evening. 

The weather was perfect, and guests enjoyed Asian fusion food, beverages, music and a special Lion Dance performance to continue celebrating the Lunar New Year. Parents had the opportunity to reconnect with friends, make new connections within the parent community and meet staff. We’d like to thank the PFA and our wonderful parent volunteers who assisted in setting up and decorating for the evening and those who worked at the bar. We really appreciated all your efforts, and it was a lovely evening for all those who attended.

Class of 1974 – 50 Year Reunion

Last Friday, we had the pleasure of hosting the Class of 1974 at their 50-year reunion. An intimate group was taken on a tour of the school by Year 11 students Ency and Isabel, followed by a sit-down lunch. They also had a chance to stroll down memory lane while browsing through archival photos and memorabilia. The event was a great success and everyone had a wonderful time.
