Vauxhall School Centenary

We warmly invite you to celebrate 100 years of Vauxhall School in our community.  We have a wonderful selection of activities planned for

Friday 6 and Saturday 7 November 2020.

 

All former pupils, staff, associates, and friends of the school are invited to register to attend the celebration.  You can pay for registration fees, function tickets, memorabilia, and any donations by credit card (VISA / MasterCard) or direct bank transfer and cheque.  Note if paying by bank transfer or cheque use the “direct deposit” option when you reach the payment section of the online form which will generate an invoice.

 

A non-refundable registration fee of $15 is charged for ALL attendees. The registration fee allows us to cover costs of promoting and running events over the two days and ALL attendees are required to register.  If you are bringing a partner (they do not need to register separately) simply complete the registration and order an extra ticket for your partner for Friday/Saturday events.

 

If you are a family who are planning to attend the Saturday Open Day and Concert, only ONE person needs to register and then tick the Family Pass option for up to X2 Adults and up to x3 children.

 

On arrival at school you must make your way to registration in the school’s main office and collect your registration pack and tickets, please note THERE WILL BE NO DOOR SALES, all tickets for both Friday and Saturday events must be purchased in advance with tickets collected at registration and shown at the gate – tickets will not be sent out in advance.

 

We will post regular lists of registered attendees so you can see who is coming along.  Everyone who registers also receives a souvenir name badge.
