Your Parents' and Friends' Association are very proud sponsors of the Celebration of Literature and this year, the Committee had the pleasure of granting a $5,000 donation for this wonderful festival.
Again we provided a relaxing place where volunteers could enjoy a space in air-conditioned comfort, affectionately known as 'The Retreat'. Committee Member, Mrs Robyn Lindsay and her team of friendly ladies did an incredible job co-ordinating the activities, including registration and providing refreshments. On behalf of all the volunteers we thank you for working tirelessly to make hundreds of gourmet sandwiches and bread rolls which were fresh and delicious.
For the first time this year, we also had the great pleasure of manning the lolly, popcorn and fairy floss stand at the Somerset Alumni Prologue Party, along with students from the Marketing Committee. There were plenty of laughs and far too many delicious temptations for parents. A highlight was watching the children enjoy the festivities and marvel at the spectacle that Somerset parent, Mrs Rebecca Pridham, created for our community. What a wonderful contribution to the spirit of Somerset.
We would also like to thank Mrs Andrea Lewis and her team in Events for their support and constantly reminding us how much the College appreciates the volunteers, the benefits of which are very well known within a community. It may be over for another year, but the memories will last forever.
