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 pay tribute to all that Whitley has meant to us.

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 suggested dresscode is semi formal/smart casual attire. Whitley ties, scarves and pins encouraged! Plus ones welcome.

10.30am | Doors Open
11.30am | Service in the Chapel
12.30pm | Lunch Served
1.30pm | Conversations with Alumni (each decade)
2.10pm | Alumni Association Launch & Group Photo
2.40pm | Fresher Dances
3.30pm | Goodbyes (post event celebrations at Naughton's Hotel)

Each guest is also asked to contribute to our Whitley Love Letter feature wall on the day by sharing their favourite college memories. Our crowd favourite coffee cart & photo booth will also be present! We might even play a fresher dance or two...


Please RSVP by Monday 13th November to help with catering.

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
