This footage is courtesy of Southern Cross news and was aired on Thursday December 5. This celebrates the partnership of New Town and Ogilvie High schools and Elizabeth College. The video also celebrates the highly acclaimed “Back to the 80s” musical which has been a joint production between New Town and Ogilvie High Schools held at Elizabeth College.
Through a combination of hard work and generous support the Prefects and House Captains have been able to raise funds for our two new flags poles which were gifted to the school today. This project was chosen for its community significance and demonstration of pride in our school, country and heritage.
This gift also celebrated our school Centenary as is a part of the 100 year celebrations that have been planned for this year.
We would like to thank you all our supporters for their significant contribution which allowed the Prefects and House Captains to complete this project.
Thank you to:
The Honourable Elise Archer MP
The Honourable Josh Willie MLC
The Honourable Rob Valentine MLC
The Honourable Ella Haddad MP
