Brooke Nicholas Pavilion: Daily Life
The Brooke Nicholas Pavilion plays host to festive community events, like the Welcome Back to Yarra Family Picnic – held at the beginning of the school year – and the Yarra Parents and Friends Biggest Morning Tea. Reunions for Yarra Old Grammarians (YOG) are often celebrated here; over the years we have seen 20, 30 and 40 Year Out Reunions. The Pavilion is home to sports celebrations throughout all seasons – AFL, tennis, hockey and cricket – and hosts volunteer ‘thank you’ events to commemorate and share in the spirit of the community.
Sounds of laughter, applause and conversation form part of the daily life of the space. Regular Yarra Foundation meetings are held here, the significant members of the School having the chance to celebrate in the School’s efforts and look forward, surrounded by history.
