Bill’s Walk for Brain Cancer 2018

The Stage 2 Event Students had a wonderful time organising Bill’s Walk For Brain Cancer which took place on Sunday 21st October 2018.

The event team consisted of 5 students and their teacher Jacinta Francis, who organised a joyous Sunday Walk at the famous Tan Track, Royal Botanic Gardens to raise money for the Bill Tingate Brain Cancer Foundation.

There were 70 participants who attended from a diversity of ages and interests but with a common goal to support brain cancer care and research. A BBQ lunch was provided after the walk with lamb and beef sausages, aromatic caramelised onions, white bread and loads of healthy salad options.

The air was filled with cheers and applauses when each ticket was drawn. There were many stunning prizes to be won.

After the event, some participants stayed back to enjoy the beautiful Sunday afternoon sunshine.       

We enjoyed every element of seeing the event come to life– from the gaining sponsorship to creating marketing content for Facebook; from being at the Registration desk to cooking the sausage sizzle on the barbecue. We were grateful for each other’s efforts and dedication towards making the event a success. We thank The Bill Tingate Brain Cancer Foundation and William Angliss Institute for providing us such a rewarding experience.   

EVENTS STUDENTS VISIT THE GRAND PRIX

 

1B EVENT STUDENTS VISIT GRAND PRIX blog

Stage 1  Event Industry students had a visit to the Formula One Grand Prix and had access to the Driver Learning Education Program.  This was a precinct within the Grand Prix where students could learn about new technologies and advancements in the area of Formula One. It was very hands on and interactive. We also had a PR Consultant talk to us about what is involved with staging an event of this nature and the importance of risk management in events.

Mentone Little Athletics Relay Day 2017

Over the course of semester two, as students studying a Diploma of Event Management at William Angliss, our team – ‘Funtastic Events’ – was given the opportunity to help collectively manage the Mentone Little Athletics Relay Day for our Project Management subject.

The Mentone Little Athletics Day was held on the 12th of November at the Dolomore Reserve in Mentone. It’s an annual event that takes place as a precursor to qualify under U8 – U15 athletes for the regional relay day event. It’s a fun, social day out for families of athletes and aims to encourage young children to lead an active lifestyle through a friendly, competitive sport.

This year, approximately 480 southern metro teams registered, some traveling as far as Mornington to compete. The event overall, was a success attracting 1,800+ attendees. There was ice-cream, coffee, an all-day barbeque, face painting and three raffle draws with many great prizes.

An event of this nature required many staging elements and our main tasks as a team included marketing the event, gaining sponsorship from local businesses for raffle prizes, implementing a risk management plan, sourcing food vendors and liaising with suppliers to secure relay batons/engraving and portable toilets.

‘Funtastic Events’ would like to thank our client and Project Manager teacher for the constant support we received through the planning and operational phases of the event. We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to help plan the Mentone Little Athletics Relay Day and have been able to gain valuable industry experience.

Barefoot Bowls for WAI Staff

On Tuesday October 31st, the stage 2 Diploma of Events Project Management Students from ‘Memento Events’ created an event to celebrate Halloween in the most traditional way of course, with Barefoot Bowls! William Angliss Institute staff were all invited to un-wind, grab a drink and play some bowls down at the local Flagstaff Bowling Club.

With snags and burgers cooking hot on the BBQ, accompanied by some killer tunes and a sneaky appearance from the sun, the evening was set. Soon after having a feed the attendees got into a friendly/competitive (you decide) game of bowls. The event went well with all that attended having an enjoyable time.

Ladies Who Lunch at Wantirna South Football Club

Ladies Who Lunch is an annual event held at Wantirna South Football Club which aims to gather together all the women related to the Club for socialising, entertainment, food and wine.

The 20th of May of 2017, the clubrooms became a pink Ladies venue, for the Pink Ribbon Appeal. 65 women enjoyed the comedian Justine McInerney, and Kerry Freer, the special guest speaker, who having survived breast cancer, delivered a most poignant presentation of her journey.

Our team, Main Events, enjoyed organising an external event. The feedback was mostly positive, but even the negative was a real learning experience. We also reached  the objective of raising enough money to update the sound system at the club.
