St George's College and the SAS Resources Trust are combining together on Saturday 10 October, for a day of interest and enjoyment at the College.
Australian SAS members constantly live a life of risk and hardship with their families facing personal and financial challenges in the event of a death. The SAS Resources Trust was developed to 'stand in the shoes of fathers lost in battle' as described by The Hon. Peter Blaxell, Chairman of the Trust.
The funds raised at SpringArts will be used to enable children of deceased SAS members to attend the College whilst studying at UWA. The College can provide some of the educational, social and pastoral support such as would normally be provided by a father supportive of their UWA attending daughter or son.
The activities on the day will include:
- An SAS historical display and talks from the SAS Historical Museumand former SAS members.
- The "Midday Live Set" featuring resident musicians and vocalists.
- Piano performances in the Hackett Dining Hall, featuring the College's pianists under the direction of College Music Fellow Raymond Yong.
- College Barbershop "The Newby Blues" and the College Ladies Ensemble "The Mockingbirds".
- Harpist and String Trio performances throughout the day in the College Chapel.
- Art display including art of Georgian Michael Knight (1989)
- Regular tours of the Gardens and College and opportunities to climb the famous Tower which has wonderful views over the Swan River and University.
- Interactive College "minecraft" type computer game for children and the young at heart.
- Art exhibition in the Junior Common Room, featuring residents' art in the form of drawings, paintings, film, sculpture and photography.
- Poetry recitals.
- Pizzas, gourmet hot dogs, ice cream and drinks availalbe for purchase.
Entry fee of $10 per person (children under 18 are free) will go towards supporting a College scholarship for a SAS Trust beneficiary.
SpringArts provides everyone of all ages, a chance to explore, discover and to re-connect with St George's College and its community.
