Parents & Friends

WELCOME PICNIC

The P&F Welcome Sausage Sizzle and Picnic held last Friday evening, 2 March was a roaring success! We enjoyed perfect weather and the beautiful surrounds of the garden between the MYC and VCE buildings. And what a turnout! Over 200 HT students, family members and friends turned out to enjoy a free sausage sizzle and entertainment. Those who attended were entertained by an exceptionally talented group of students (and Principal!) who provided wonderful music and singing. The BBQ was capably manned by some of our amazing P&F members along with some committed staff, including Junior School head Dot Grieveson and Business Manager Rob Kitchingman.

The P&F extends its sincere thanks to all who made the evening such a success – P&F members who helped with setting up, serving and packing up; HT staff who arranged the music program (Adam Somes); sound system (Tony Hill); the families who brought along and contributed some extra special treats and the many and varied student performers. A special thanks to Mr Bowen, who provided a most-entertaining solo performance and of course, to all the HT families who came along and made the event such a big occasion. The feeling of community is alive and well at Huntingtower!
