The essential elements for a great night all came together last Saturday - perfect weather, good conversation and delicious food in the company of new and old friends - resulting in another memorable GenWelcomes!
The effort of parents and helpers from both the GMA and GFA was very much appreciated, not just on the night but in the weeks and months in the lead up. So much planning takes place, with nothing left to chance. The only element out of our control is the weather, but again the sun shone in the afternoon during set up, leaving us with a beautiful mild night and just a drizzle of rain at the end of the evening.
More than 530 parents and guests were treated to a sit-down meal in the Circular Drive, preceded by Mass at All Hallows earlier in the evening celebrated by Fr. Brendan. On arrival at Genazzano, guests were warmly welcomed by members of the GFA and presented with a cooling drink before moving to their allocated tables.
The night was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the strong community that exists at our College and extend a warm welcome to our new Principal Ms Karen Jebb. Watch the video of her opening remarks.
It was a magical night under the watchful gaze of the Wardell Building which was showcasing its best features under the spotlight.
The success of the evening depends on all parties working closely and tirelessly together. Thanks must go to the College staff, the GFA and the GMA.
