Friends President David Moore updated on another successful year for the association and its support of the students and staff at the College.

Board of Governors Chair Simon Power thanked the Friends for their outstanding support of the College along with Headmaster Simon Lamb who acknowledged the many hours of dedicated volunteer hours given by parents and the wider community to run and support Friends events and initiatives.

The Committee now has a full complement of 10 members including new parents Ana Waalkens, Helene Bizouerne, Cecilia Lambie and Nicole Xiang. 

Tom Hunt and Libby White have resigned from the committee but will assist till the end of the year.

Current Vice President Mel Yates has also stepped down after serving seven years with the Friends. Her commitment to the Friends was also appreciated by her son who surprised her on the night with thank you flowers on behalf of his family.
