All Sports Video 2018
It was a celebration of all games played at Shore, as Parents, Old Boys and friends gathered for the 2018 All Sports lunch. Almost 500 people joined the fun at the Westin Hotel, enjoying a delicious lunch and great company. It was exciting to see many more in the Shore Community take part in our online auction.
The 2018 Captains of Sport were welcomed to their new roles by the Foundation President, Tony Young (77) and we heard a special message from Chris Savage – 2018 Captain of Cross Country. OBU President Andrew Winslade (87) made a very generous donation of $300,000 on behalf of the Old Boys’ Union toward the new Shore Physical Education Centre.
A team of ‘young’ old boys rallied the troops to buy raffle tickets, while Mark Ticehurst (Shore Sports Master) ran an entertaining sports quiz – the winner being our Deputy Headmaster Rod Morrison.
We enjoyed hearing from our panel, kindly hosted by Rod Kafer – with Dr Wright sharing insights from his recent sabbatical, Raelene Castle discussing her role as CEO of Rugby Australia and Rod Macqueen sharing his thoughts on the Shore Rugby programme.
Thank you to our supporters, who kindly contributed auction items and those who made generous donations. We are grateful to everyone who helped make the day such a great success.
In addition to the OBU donation, a record amount of $163,220 was raised on the day. Thank you to the Shore Community for your generous support of our boys.
Our next exciting event is the ‘Grandparents Morning Tea’ – Friday 14 September, details coming soon.
