Marist Card and Games Day

The P&F will be hosting the Marist Card & Games Day again on Wednesday 31 July.

The Card & Games Day is a community event where attendees bring friends to enjoy a day of meeting up with each other to play cards, scrabble or other board games, while savouring morning tea provided by Marist families and lunch provided by the College kitchen. New table bookings (4 people per table) are always welcome. 

To make these days a success, the P&F needs parent helpers to assist with baking or supplying items for morning tea and/or attending on the day to set up and serve our guests.

If you can assist with sweet or savoury baked goods (we have a warming oven), they can be dropped off at the Cyprian Pavilion from 8:00am (or sent in with your son). Disposable containers are preferred but other containers will be sent back to Student Administration if not collected on the day (please ensure your name is on all containers). Please either pre-cut items or ensure that they can be cut into bitesize pieces.

Volunteers for the day are needed for the following sessions:

8:00am – 10:30am – setup and serve morning tea
11:30am – 1:30pm – setup and serve lunch
2:00pm – 2:30pm – final clean-up and pack down

Volunteers are most welcome to assist for all or part of the day.  It is a great way to meet other parents from many different year levels, as well as contributing to an enjoyable day for guests from the community.

We also conduct a raffle for which items are sought from parents or businesses (e.g. movie tickets, wine, coffee, chocolates, vouchers, etc.). They can be sent into Student Administration in the week leading up to Card & Games Day.

If you are able to help by baking/supplying items for morning tea, assisting on the day, or providing an item for the raffle, please contact Ann Hogarth (0419 752 301) or Sue Hartfiel (0423 076 603) at email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

We very much appreciate all of the support we get from the College community for the Card & Games Days.
