Message of Thanks from POR Co-Presidents
On behalf of the POR, we would like to sincerely thank all the parents who supported the Ruyton Luncheon at Kooyong last Friday. With the generous contributions from local businesses as well as the items and donations collected from the community for the Year Level Hampers which were packaged up into raffle prizes, we were able to raise nearly $14,000 for the Margaret McRae Centre.
Special thanks to the Year Level Representatives who helped organise tables of guests, as well as contributions for the raffle prizes. Thank you also to our Year 10 and 11 pianists, Angela C, Haini J and Anna R, and to our Music Captain Jennifer T, accompanied by Mr Shaun Jones, for sharing their musical talents with us. It’s always amazing to hear young ladies perform with such maturity and awe inspiring talent.
What wonderful insights we gained from hearing our accomplished Old Ruytonian, Jane Hadjion, speak to us of her time at Ruyton, and of her post-school journey in the field of Science, Technology and Engineering.
Whether this was your first or, for, some of our Year 12 parents, your last Ruyton Luncheon, we hope that you enjoyed catching up with other parents in our community. A very big thank you to Fab Mazzocco, who, with the help of Kate McPhail, Rashmee Bala, Susie Sutherland, and other members of the POR committee, along with Tonya Peters and Marilyn Rouhard in the Development Office, worked hard in the months before to make the event such a success. A special thank you also to Louise Houlihan for once again creating stunning floral centrepieces for the tables.
Special thanks to the following local businesses for their support of the Ruyton Community and the new Margaret McRae Centre with contributions towards the raffle items at the Luncheon:
Adroit Hairdressers, Ashakki, Betty McDowell Lingerie, Chemist Warehouse, Endota Spa - Kew, Flavour, Hahndorf's Fine Chocolates, Hairhouse Warehouse, Lattouf International, OK4 Kids, Peony, Piccoli Photography and Rhubarb.
For another fantastic opportunity to come together again and share in the Ruyton community spirit, please note the date of the 2015 Ruyton Ball in your diaries, Saturday 22 August.
