The Long Lunch – Feast Beneath the Figs
The Inaugural Long Lunch was held at the School on Saturday, 2 September, 2017 in celebration of the School’s 125th Birthday. Approximately 370 people attended on a stunning, sunny Spring day. Beautifully laid tables were positioned along the School’s historic Avenue of Trees, a band played under the figs and food and drink were served from various locations adjacent to the avenue. A brilliant day was had by all!
Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School has been, and is, the catalyst for our unique school community. For 125 years it has fostered lifelong friendships and cherished memories. This year’s Long Lunch has strengthened the friendships and created new memories for those who attended the event.
