Parents & Friends Pizza Day !

Yesterday’s Parents & Friends Pizza Day was a popular event once again with students from both campuses chomping through nearly 200 boxes of pizza! It takes many hands to collate orders, transport and deliver so many pizzas, so we would like to thank all the committee members as well as SRC from year 10 and 11 who volunteered their time to make this event possible. It is  dedication like this that  demonstrates the strong community spirit of our College. Gina Kadis and Stephanie Kosmetos visited and spent some time mingling with students and teachers alike and the vibe in the quadrangle was lively and fun. Thank you to all  parents  that continuously support all our P&F...
