The Year 9, Prep and Year 6 Buddies Biggest Morning Tea is a highlight of the Newhaven College calendar and this year was extra cause for celebration as the college clocked up 10 years of hosting an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
In that ten years, the college has raised thousands of dollars for the Cancer Council’s research and support programs.
Students went all out and put a tremendous amount of work into creating fabulously detailed costumes for the theme of ‘Fairy Tales and Movie Characters’.
Many famous stars attended including Bananas in Pyjamas, Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion and Glenda the Good Witch from ‘The Wizard of Oz’, The Seven Dwarves, several Star Wars characters and Noah Wright came dressed as an amazingly realistic Navi from the movie ‘Avatar’.
Preps eyes popped when they entered the Year 9 Centre to see tables set end to end for the length of the entire centre spread with delicious morning tea treats that students had brought to share.
Over 200 people attended including special VIP guests from Grossard Court whom the Year 9 students had worked with during their Community Projects studies.
They all enjoyed an entertaining costume parade before sharing morning tea together.
