The Grand Opening event of the Centennial weekend features a Villa showcase, where guests will be treated to a celebration that encompasses music and drama, with a touch of nostalgia.

Villa's Great Day Out!

Saturday 17 February | 10:00am - 2:00pm  
 

The College Parents' Association (PTA) and the Past Pupils' Association (PPA) are joining forces to create a Great Day Out for all ages. A carnival will be the centrepiece of the day, with food trucks, games, entertainment, swimming and spaces for Villa girls both young and old to gather and share memories together.

Don't miss the beautiful Exhibition, presenting the treasured photos and artefacts from the Villa archives. This is a visual trip down memory lane, and will show the Villa journey over the past 100 years.

Join us for a Devonshire Tea, see your old teachers and classmates, enjoy a guided tour of the College, and be a part of history by having your class photo taken at the Centennial!

Villa's Great Day Out will be a wonderful party for the whole Villa community!
