Somerville House Commemoration Day 2020 Service - now online!
Somerville House and the Old Girls’ Association warmly invites you to join them for the 2020 Commemoration Day Ceremony Online.
For the first time since the celebration was held in 1900, this year Commemoration Day will be hosted via video. While COVID restrictions prevent us from gathering for our traditional Commemoration Day Assembly and Lunch at the school, we are excited by the opportunity to share a ‘virtual’ Commemoration Day with our community.
The video features all the usual highlights of Commemoration Day, including:
@09:00 minutes: ringing of the bell
@09:30 minutes: OGA President Liz Washington (class of 1998) address
@13:00 minutes: Annual keynote address by Old Girl and acclaimed author, Jackie Frank AM
@19:00 minutes: Principal Kim Kiepe's address
@26:25 minutes: the cake!
@27:40 minutes: musical performance by Grace Kruger (class of 2016)
Thank you to the Communications, Events and IT team at Somerville for creating our virtual Commemoration Day; and for all speakers and performers involved!
We look forward to celebrating with you.
