From the Chairman - Term 2, 2018
T2 2018 highlights

Welcome to another busy term at WCC. The programme includes a wide variety of topics and activities, so I hope that you will each find something of interest in it. We now have a suggestion box at Enrolment Day and welcome suggestions by email or to Melissa at any time. So please put your thinking caps on and suggest activities or speakers for inclusion in the programme.

Among the continuing activities and new events this term, you will find some repeats of events that were over-subscribed last term. If an event is full when your enrolment is processed, please allow yourself to be put on the waiting list so we will know whether to increase the number of places if possible, or repeat the activity in a later term.

As usual, the Annual General Meeting was held in Term 1. We thank retiring Vice-Chairman Wendy Hogan and committee members Judith Rossi and Sally Hincks for their service to WCC, and extend a warm welcome to our new management committee member, Anne McCrudden. New Rules of Association were put to members at the AGM to update our constitution and comply with recent WA legislation. I hope that the necessary paperwork will have been completed for the changes to come into effect by the start of Term 2.

I look forward to seeing you at events during the term.

Connie Chapman, Chairman.

Thanks and Congratulations

Aurelien and Sandy at practise A58A3453Our dedicated volunteer programme planners work hard to ensure that our term programmes include a wide variety of events. Last week we were delighted to host West Australian Ballet’s Artistic Director, Aurélien Scannella, and Ballet Mistress, Sandy Delasalle.

The event was well attended and most enjoyable and WCC would like to thank everyone involved: planners, presenters, volunteers and, of course, the WA Ballet, for donating their time to ensure the success of this event.

WA Ballet also very generously donated a door prize for one lucky person attending the talk. All the names were written on slips of paper and a name was drawn at random.

Congratulations to Gwen Manser for winning two tickets to the WA Ballet 2018 production of La Sylphide, running at His Majesty's Theatre from 18 May – 2 June.
