CGGS Celebrates Spring Carnival 

On Thursday 7 November, CGGS celebrated the tradition of Oaks Day with many women attending a ladies’ lunch.

Dressed in style and wearing beautiful headpieces, all guests embraced the Spring Carnival theme of fashion and fun. Enjoying a drink and canapes on arrival followed by a sit-down lunch, guests were also treated to a wonderful fashion parade by The Ark Clothing Company viewing their summer collection.

A gift bag including styling vouchers, sweet treats and beauty items was given to each lady plus everyone received a mystery bet with a horse in the second race of the day. This brought the race track to the event, as the race was viewed during the lunch which resulted in great excitement and a few winners on the day!

Surprise door prizes were awarded to many lucky guests including, a Girl’s Night Out, designer homewares, spa vouchers, wine hampers, and in-home styling consultations.

Supported by the Parents and Friends Association, the Oaks Day Lunch provided a great opportunity for many women of CGGS to socialise with school friends and meet other mums within the school community.
