Tour Down Under – 2018 Family Fun Day
A Sunday function has been organized to coincide with the TDU each year.
Initially it was a large fundraising event with a lunch/drinks package for $120/person. They were well supported but relied on guests from outside the Alumni.
For the past few years, it’s been a ‘non-fundraising’ family day, with activities for the kids and open to the public. Admittance is $10 with a barbecue and bar available. These days are also well attended.
The 2018 Family Fun Day will be on Sunday, 21st January. Free entry if you are staying overnight!
Held in June 2015, the $150 Black Tie event was organized to raise much needed funds for College projects and to recognise the achievements of several distinguished Alumni.
The significant career achievements of the following alumni were celebrated on the night, each presented with an Aquinas Medal:
- PROFESSOR DAVID J DAVID AC
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR ELIZABETH LEANE
- HON JUSTICE KEVIN DUGGAN AM QC RFD
- MS HELEN McCABE
While it was a very successful evening, it was time consuming preparation for an already busy College staff.
It was decided to hold this event every three or four years.
2019 is the 70th year of Aquinas College and is likely the key milestone for the next major event as the Alumni committee and key contacts are established, regular alumni communications maintained and database contact details improved.
