Parents' Events

THE PARENTS' EVENTS COMMITTEE
Over the last six years, the Parents' Event Committee, with support from Win Coll Soc, has been creating an active and supportive parental community and organising gatherings for parents from all year groups and Houses. The current Chairman is Tor Machado (Xavier C, 2016-) who is supported by her deputies Sarah Wigley (Tristan K, 2017- and Jasper K, 2013-) and Sophie Meek (Ollie K, 2014-).

EVENTS

Winchester College Summer Party 2018
On a sweltering London summer evening, the windows of the fabulous Drapers’ Hall were flung open to cool down the assembled throng of 230 parents. The hard work of Tor Machado and her two deputies Sarah Wigley and Sophie Meek, together with the rest of the Committee, bore fruit in what proved to be a most enjoyable event. First class food and buckets of sparkling rosé, generously donated by Hambledon Vineyard, ensured that guests had plenty of energy to dance to excellent music, provided by a young DJ with superlative taste (ie 1975-80). The highpoint of course was the auction, raising £43,000 in support of Outdoor Learning.

Domum 2018
On Saturday 30 June, 140 leavers of the Class of  2018, together with their parents, assembled for drinks in the Warden’s Garden on a beautiful evening after a special service in Chapel; parents then repaired to the Win Coll Soc marquee for dinner. Following the mob rule of previous years, a scheme had been hatched for parents to assemble in Chamber Court in a disciplined manner to see their sons descend from College Hall. Leavers and parents were finally reunited in the Warden’s Garden to sing Domum, accompanied by a small silver band. The new arrangements were judged a success. View a selection photographs.
