Calling all oarsmen and rowing community members – past and present – it’s time to get back in the boat and help us build the new Aquinas College Boat Shed.

The Aquinas College Foundation will host an official launch of the Boat Shed Appeal on Friday 3rd May. Past and current rowing parents are invited to attend this special event which will mark the beginning of the campaign to fund the development of the new Boat Shed on the shores of Aquinas.

The official launch will be followed by a series of Rowing Reunions across the generations of past rowers within our alumni community, from those who graduated last year, to rowers of last century – each will be invited to attend a reunion dedicated to particular leaving year groups, including the 1950s, 1960s-’70s, 1980s-’90s and 2000s-2010s. Each reunion will feature pre-drinks in the current Br N.N. Wilson Boat Shed, canapes and a two-course meal. 100 per cent of profits from the event will benefit the Boat Shed Appeal.

Your generous, tax­ deductible donations were highly appreciated and have been put to good use, providing funds for the expansion of the College Chapel and the provision of a dedicated common room for our hardworking Year 12 students.

The 2019 Building Fund Appeal is now underway.  Your generosity this year will help facilitate the development of an exciting new Arts Building, which will transform the educational landscape of Aquinas College. More information will be communicated as the project develops over the coming months.

As usual, you can make your annual contribution to the 2019 Building Fund Appeal by ticking the box on your 2019 Fee Statement or by visiting our Online Store and selecting ACF Inc Building Fund from the dropdown menu.
