On Friday, 8 September, our Year 7s bought along their fathers, grandfathers, uncles or other significant men to the annual Year 7 Father and Son Breakfast.
With over 220 boys and guests in Centenary Hall the coffee and hot chocolate was much needed for both our boys and their guests.
One father said, “It was hard to drag him out of bed so early, but great to meet so many the fathers of Year 7”.
Thank you to Helen Graham and Kathy Walsh from the NEW Women P&F group who began preparing for the event at the crack of dawn, and for leading the team of wonderful NEW Women assistants in the organisation.
Over 13 litres of coffee and 50 litres of hot chocolate and 100 apples were served and as a souvenir. each father and son received their very own Newington College Keep Cup to take home.
This year on the menu our guests were fed breakfast pizzas from Lacantro in Leichhardt.
Congratulations goes to Mark Connor who won the lucky door prize of a Father and Son strength and conditioning session with our own Director of Strength and Conditioning, Mr Nathan Parnham, and a special thanks goes to our Head of Year 7, Ms Colleen Scalone.
