What a great day it was yesterday as we welcomed back to Aquinas former students who graduated, or would have graduated, in a year ending in '7'. It was wonderful that we had representation from 67,77,87,97 and 07! We hope those able to make it enjoyed the day. Thanks for the memories everyone - we loved having you back!
Plans are already underway for our Reunion in 2018. We will keep you informed.
The Soul Singers – Manu & Madi (former students) and current students Lana & Sophie were invited to perform at the Hyllus Maris Memorial Lecture at Latrobe University on Wednesday 8th March. The lecture was reinstated this year as part of La Trobe University's 50th Anniversary.
"What an amazing opportunity it was to sing at the Hyllus Maris Memorial lecture. In honour of famous aboriginal activist, artist and cultural leader Hyllus Maris, we performed 'Ngarra Burra Ferra' a traditional aboriginal song from the Yorta Yorta tribe. We were inspired by the movie 'Sapphires' to sing this song, and our wildest dreams came true when we met an original Sapphire, Lois Peeler who also attended the lecture. Keynote speaker Dr Anita Heiss inspired us through her powerful and beautiful speech. And at the end of the night, Isaiah Firebrace (winner of X Factor 2016) melted our hearts with his performance. What a night to remember! "
