Our 20-year book has arrived!

Dainfern College celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017, having first opened its doors in January 1997. To commemorate this achievement, the College has now published a hard-back book as a gift for all Dainfern College families and staff. ‘The Dainfern College Story’ is a celebration of the establishment and growth of the College over the past two decades.

The book was written and compiled by the College’s Communications Manager, Joanna Pettitt, who has been a parent at the College since 1998 and said it was an amazing way to relive the history of the school:

“Dainfern College has been an integral part of our family for 20 years and it was an amazing experience to look back over the years and chronicle the development of this special school, witnessing the sense of family and the high standard of educational excellence that pervades all we do.”

The book was first distributed to College families on 22 March and parents, staff and students were intrigued by the early photographs and memories and fascinated to see the changes and innovations over the years.

“The pictures of the campus from 1997 to date show just how profound the changes have been and yet the school maintains an integrity that was visible in 1997,” commented parents Alison and Garth Munro, whose son is in Grade 11 at the College. “As parents it is easy to forget just how much hard work, commitment, faith and love it takes to keep a school like Dainfern College operating and this book is a credit to all the members of Dainfern’s staff for that dedication.”

Those that did not recieve theirs on the 22nd can make their way to the Media Centre today (23 March) to collect their copies.

A limited number of ‘The Dainfern College Story’ will be available for sale to those interested in acquiring a copy shortly after the initial roll out.
