On Sunday 11 March Oakhill College held the 2018 Open Day, welcoming one of the biggest crowds of visitors seen in recent years.
Over 300 students volunteered to help throughout the day running guided tours of our College grounds to showcase the facilities. Students also assisted teachers in classrooms with subject displays, cooked a sausage sizzle for visitors, assisted with the catering in the Centenary Sports Centre and generally making guests feel welcome. Alumna and representatives from the Parents and Friends Association were vital in ensuring all visitors received gelato on such a hot day!
Two Year 7 students, Noah Hemmings and Kaden Gavinder, confidently and eloquently addressed the audience after each Principal’s Address. Having only been at the College for six weeks, they shared their personal experience of Oakhill life. Noah commented, “At Oakhill you are given so many opportunities to “Let your light shine” whether it be academic, sport, agriculture, or even drama or music.”
Principal Br Steve Hogan thought the day was a wonderful success. “Our students are our best asset and I am extremely proud of them. They uphold the Lasallian Principals including respect and inclusivity, and act as strong ambassadors for Oakhill College.”
