College Celebration set for 2022- Celebrating 101 Years
What’s better then celebrating your school turning 100? Celebrating it turning 101 of course!
That’s the approach the organising committee of the 100 Year Celebration of Higher Education at Camperdown College took when faced with strict Covid 19 guidelines hampering their plans for a grand celebration in October this year.
With border closures, travel restrictions and strict density limits, organisers say it just wouldn’t be right to hold the event when so many people couldn’t be present.
“We’ve had an overwhelming response of past students and families wanting to attend; local, metropolitan Melbourne, regional Victoria and interstate” explained Principal Cherie Kilpatrick. “While they can’t get here we just can’t hold the event”.
The postponed event schedule for the weekend remains the same and all tickets purchased to the High Tea and School Social will be transferred over to the new dates of 15th October, 2022.
“We value the ability of all past students in being able to attend the celebration so greatly and we’re dedicated to making the event accessible to everyone. We’re hoping by postponing the event into 2022 we can make that happen” Ms Kilpatrick explained.
