President's Message

Commonwealth Day 2020

 

Thank you for making Commonwealth Day a great success. We had over 250 guests join us for the celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations - a celebration we have been holding for over 30 years.

 

Our guests enjoyed our presenter Kate McClymont AM and the presence of our Patron Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC Governor of NSW who presented Her Majesty's message.
