We hosted the party of the Centenary!
Tuesday 20 September, 2016
The Pymble Ladies’ College annual Garden Party is a much-loved tradition that unites the whole community – and this year’s event delivered in spades.
The College grounds were alive with the happy chatter of thousands of visitors who made the most of the stunning Spring day and the host of attractions on offer.
Our younger visitors had a ball taking turns on the rides and slides on the Main Oval, petting the farmyard animals and having their arms, hands or fingers plastered – and decorated! – by the physiotherapists at the Casualty Clearing Station.
Visitors also enjoyed viewing the impressive cake and cake box decorating competition entries and the student art exhibition, as well as guessing the weight of the steers at the agriculture students’ unprecendented livestock display.
Culturally diverse food options ranged from gourmet barbecue favourites, to souvlaki, Japanese, Korean and Sri Lankan delights and, of course, plenty of coffee, cakes and baked goods.
The Portobello Road markets on Marden Lawn offered a delightful al fresco shopping experience and live entertainment included performances from Pymble choral groups, quartets and bands as well as our friends from across the road, the Knox Pipe Band.
Hundreds of Pymble students, parents and staff were out in force to ensure the day ran smoothly, proudly manning their stalls and volunteering as convenors and helpers for the numerous stalls, displays and activities.
The College extends heartfelt thanks to all those involved for their time, effort and commitment to hosting such a memorable day. We couldn’t be more proud of Team Pymble!
