Independence Day Celebrations
It is our great pleasure to advice of the associationís Independence Day celebrations.
The association executive has collectively agreed to hold our celebration on Saturday 15th September 2007 at the APEX PARK, ALTONA,
starting at 1100 am. This date selection was done to avoid disruptions to any planned church worship and attendance.
Our choice of location was primarily made with the view of exposing ourselves at the same time create awareness on our great country to the wider community within the state. The other reason was to provide our students, especially the new ones, the chance to venture out from their current habitual places into the outer suburbs. Perhaps, one other was to provide that ideal opportunity for our folks to experience the current warm temperatures beside the shores.
As per the associationís plans, it will be providing most of the food and drinks for the event. However, this does not stop any of our students from contributing. In effect, you are welcome to do so. Should any intend to do such, may we suggest, that you bring in some of our very own traditional delicacies like sago, banana or taro.
To change from the usual eat and drink habit, we have decided to incorporate a few other activities into the dayís celebrations. We have planned to have on that day sporting games of rugby touch, basketball and volleyball. It is anticipated that with a good turnout we shall divide into teams and play against each other. Additionally, our elder citizen, Philip Eka, has volunteered to take our children for a guided tour around the area. On that note, seeing that the location is next to the sea, we ask that all parents bring the necessary gears for their respective children, should they intend to swim.
Those that are not familiar with the place are asked to travel into Footscray on the train and catch the 411 bus that departs at Paisley Street. Alternatively, you can go all the way to Altona on the train, and then catch the same bus to the park. However, if for some reason you still require more information, please call into your nearest customer service desk at the train station, and they should be better able to help you out.
Lastly, we (executives) have noted with great concern of our approach and attitude towards time and its management. Given that this will be a very significant and special occasion for us, we as students, and more importantly as leaders in our own right, must be exemplary in our approach toward such. We plead with you beginning on this vital occasion and onwards to be more considerate and make a change for the betterment of all. For this reason we expect everyone to arrive at the park by 1030 am to allow the commencement of the proceedings as planned.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all
