Garden Party

2018 - Garden Party - Logo

The Garden Party is the College’s only fundraising event where all funds raised are donated to the Somerset College Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for students who otherwise may not have the financial capacity to attend our College.

Every two years, we don our garden party attire, tailored sunglasses, hats and fascinators to bask in the entertainment and atmosphere of the Garden Party! This biennial fundraiser will take shape within the forecourt of our very own Sports Facility precinct, set amongst rustic bars, market umbrellas, spring flowers, luxury cars, and magnificent dining.

Dress Code: Smart Casual


Available from the Somerset College website, tickets purchased include not only an all-access pass to the Garden Party and a three course spring luncheon created by our very own Chef De Cuisine Mr Martin Furlong, but most importantly includes a contribution to the Scholarship Fund!

Silent Auction

There’s more than one way to be involved! Open to everyone, the online Garden Party Silent Auction will not only provide an opportunity to contribute to the Scholarship Fund but also to access to an extravaganza of experiences, products, and memorabilia - all just a tap away! Your mobile device is all you need to join the Silent Auction, with bidding opening one week before the Garden Party.


The Foundation appreciates all support of the Garden Party, whether through patronage on the day, participation in the online Silent Auction, sponsorship of this fundraiser, or donations to our auction items. To become a sponsor, or to donate to the Silent Auction, please contact

All current and past parents, staff, alumni, and friends of the College are invited to attend the Garden Party. Tickets to this fundraiser sell fast and are limited, so flag the date in your calendar, don’t miss out, and we’ll see you there!
