The Island School Block Party

On the evening of 9th June 2017, Island School will host a large party, open to alumni, staff, parents and students for the last chance to see the current school buildings before the demolition crew arrive!!  Bring those special memories alive and enjoy music, dancing, food and refreshments (soft drinks and alcohol).

On the evening of 10th June 2017, Island School will hold a lavish 50th Anniversary Party at the Grand Hyatt, Wanchai.  Our guests will enjoy a sumptuous evening of 5 star food and entertainment, a chance to grab a special Island School souvenir and meet Island School’s infamous Principals (subject to confirmation): Jonty Driver, Colin Niven, David James, Michelle Hughes and Chris Binge.

The evening will start at 6pm. There is capacity for 500 people, first come first served!!  Tickets are priced per person: Standard $2000, Silver (front tables) $3000 and Gold (table adjacent to the Principal’s table) $4000.
