Lilydale High School Centenary Commencement Dinner

Lilydale High School is celebrating 100 years and you’re invited!

“The long-delayed official opening of the new higher elementary school took place in the new school grounds on Friday, May 2.  A large number of parents showed their interest by being present.”

To kick off celebrations at Lilydale High School in our centenary year, past students, teachers, principals, school council members and parents are invited to our Commencement Dinner, Saturday 30 March at the Karralyka Theatre, Ringwood.

A three-course meal (entree, main and dessert) with free-flowing soft drinks, tea and filtered coffee will be served and alcoholic drinks will also be provided at bar prices. The cost per person is $80.

Seating will be arranged in tables of 10.  Please indicate on the expression of interest form if you are booking for the whole table or would like for us to arrange for you to be seated with people from your approximate era (where possible).
