Vic High Black & Gold Honour Roll
The Alumni’s premier biennial event, our Black & Gold Dinner, inducts a new group of extraordinary Vic High alumni into the Black & Gold Honour Roll each time it’s held. Each inductee is featured in a unique video, and Vic High students attend the event with alumni and help introduce each inductee. A wonderfully touching evening, as alumni across all school years gather to honour our own. It’s also a successful fundraising event that helps cover Alumni Association operating costs so we can keep connecting alumni and support our school and current students. Enjoy the videos. They are superb!
