on 29 April in the College Hall.

reach of our activities within the school. We believe it will enable
all students to hear the journeys and inspirational words of
wisdom from ex-students. This year our guests were from the
class of 1985. As the Assembly also commemorated Anzac Day
it was appropriate that one of our speakers, Megan Turner
(nee Mullins) served with the RAAF for many years in various
roles and locations both within Australia and overseas. Jane
Huxley, the Managing Director of Pandora Internet Radio and
formerly the chief executive of Fairfax Digital, also spoke.
The Association participated in the College Open Day. It was
lovely to see so many ex- students planning for their daughters
to attend their Alma Mater. Currently there are 70 ex-students
with daughters in the College. Hence the tradition of the Mother
Daughter photograph continues and will be held at 8:30am on
Thursday 11 June on the oval.

students in Years 10 to 12 with ex-students. Students will be
