Junee High School was transformed into a fine dining hot spot last Friday evening when the school hosted their very first Long Table Alfresco Dinner.
The dinner was held to raise money for AgVision, a biannual convention held at the school that draws in students from all over the state wishing to pursue careers in agriculture.
Junee High School’s Julie Shepherd said there was a strong turn out on what was a night enjoyed by all.
“Over 60 guests were seated under the COLA, which was suitably decorated with festive lights and other deocrations,” Ms Shepherd said.
“Special guests from the event were the local member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke, guest speaker and Nuffield Scholar Jock Graham, and singer Charles Patterson, who entertained guests during the evening.
“Catering was carried out by the Parents and Citizens Association members along with canteen manager Marie Wright, teachers, and the volunteer waitresses from the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory.”
Ms Shepherd said the school raised a good amount of money on the night that will help them prepare for this year’s AgVision.
“The Parents and Citizen’s Association are extremely appreciative of everyone’s attendance and support on the night,” Ms Shepherd said.
“At the conclusion of the evening, a cheque for $3000 was presented to the coordinator of AgVision, Sandra Heffernan, and this money will be used to purchase equipment for the Ag Block and assist in the running of AgVision.”
This year’s AgVision will take place on September 7.
