With 500 registered teams ( nearly 1500 athletes) and over 80 races,  the day was a fantastic success!46351715_341151430021688_5410367897589514240_n

The day was a lovely sunny Sunday, which involved friendly competitive races, canteen and raffles. Phoenix Productions managed a very successful inaugural Parents Race which attracted a huge amount of participants.

The kids corner featuring colouring in competition and pin the medal on the athlete were also very popular. Furthermore, there was a jelly bean competition with Jelly beans so Kindly donated by Bayside Sweets and Treats.

Overall, the day was a success and we thank our teachers, team mates and sponsors for their support.

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.  


After lunch, guests gathered around to hear the winners of the raffle and silent auctions announced.


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.
