Event description

Description

Dear Whitleans, sadly after 52 wonderful years Whitley Residential College is closing down. This Alumni Gala will be our last chance to celebrate on College grounds. Join us on this profound day as we say goodbye to the physical building and (hopefully) hello to the start of our new alumni association.

There will be a service in the morning which will involve a handover of memorial stones and plaques. A substantial lunch will follow along with champagne for a toast or two. The afternoon will feature a series of speeches honouring Whitley's history and looking towards the future as an alumni community.

The dresscode is semi formal/ cocktail attire. Whitley ties, scarves and pins encouraged! Plus ones welcome.

10.30 Doors open, coffee served

11.30 Service in the Chapel

12.30 Lunch

1.00 Speeches (Guest Speakers TBA)

2.00 Alumni Association Toast

3.30 Goodbyes

***

Our Alumni Gala will be a daytime event to allow people travelling from afar and/or with young children, the chance to attend. If you need advice on accommodation options please email alumni@whitley.unimelb.edu.au


For those who wish to continue into the evening, we may head to Naughton's Hotel afterwards.
