Greetings to all CAV members.

Here’s my overdue newsletter to give you updates on what has happened at CAV. In a roundabout way, that’s a good thing. We’ve been very busy with a lot of activities at every level – and nothing untoward has happened that needed me to update you.

First, I hope that you all have had an enjoyable Christmas 2022 and New Year 2023 holiday with family and friends. On behalf of the EXCO, I wish you all a great year ahead in 2023!

CAV Turns 40!

This has been an auspicious year for the CAV, and we celebrated this with our 40th Anniversary. In September 2022 we held the CAV School Cultural & Food Festival in conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Moon Cake Festival. There were lots of food stalls, children’s performances and cultural activities throughout the day and we attracted close to 1000 patrons for this event. We also had a number of CAV sponsors open stalls at our event and we enjoyed the performances by the students of St. Jude’s Primary School with their choir as well as musical performances by Music Time School’s students.

CAV school parents also enjoyed performances by their children (from kinder all the way to grade 12) with singing, poem recitals, story-telling and musical performances. We had a very enjoyable day and good weather. Our event was attended by several VIPs including The Hon. Ros Spence, Jackson Taylor MP, Will Fowles MP, Nick Wakeling MP, the former Knox Mayor Cr.Susan Laukens and current Knox Mayor Cr. Marcia Timmers- Leitch.

We would like to thank the CAV School Council team lead by Vice President Neoh Chee Yeong and Chiau Lin Lau (as MC) for their efforts to organize this event.
