The Aquinas College community celebrated the annual Ladies’ Auxiliary July Morning Tea on the final day of Term 2.

Mums, aunties, grandmothers and friends gathered to enjoy a delicious morning tea with family and new acquaintances. Guest speaker Amanda Viviers inspired audience members, discussing the importance of identity, taking time out for yourself and finding a creative outlet to alleviate stress in your day-to-day life.

Kelly Chisolm also spoke at the event, sharing stories of her time in Ruanda and being part of a supportive community of women. Aquinas College musicians, drama students and the Schola Choir also entertained guests on arrival and throughout the morning.

The annual July Morning Tea is the Ladies’ Auxiliary’s main fundraising event of the year. Each year a Major Raffle is held to raise funds, congratulations to the Major Raffle Prize winners;

1st Prize $10,000: Christine Bacon
2nd Prize $4,000: Michelle Latham
3rd Prize $1,000: Virginia Bradshaw

This event is organised and run by dedicated volunteers each year, and could not be possible without their ongoing support of the event. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s July Morning Tea.
