Families flocked to the College Green in droves on Tuesday 16 February to celebrate our first community event of the school year.
Families on the Green was a roaring success, with around 600 guests dropping by to mingle with parents, students and teachers and enjoy the wonderful food and entertainment on offer, including live music, courtesy of our College band, and the ever-popular jumping castle.
A major highlight of the program was a spectacular lion dance performance from the Chinese Community Association of Tasmania.
With glorious sunshine and clear blue skies, the warm weather made ice cream from our canteen a hot commodity on the night!
Murphy’s canteen staff and volunteers worked tirelessly, scooping up approximately 500 ice cream cones over the course of the event (that’s close to 50 litres – wow!).
A big thank you to everyone who attended and to those generous and kind-hearted individuals who volunteered their time to ensure the event ran smoothly—from manning the sausage sizzles, serving beverages and firing up the pizza ovens, to helping with set-up and pack-up duties.
