2018 Annual Easter Duck Race
2018 Easter Duck Race a fabulous success !!
Duck Race 2018 was a huge success. Race conditions on Easter Sunday were perfect. A large crowd gathered to cheer on their ducks and listen to the expert race call by our MC Tracie Holgate . Over 1400 tickets were sold and the lucky winners were as follows-
1st Place – Duck Number 18 ($500 to each winner)
Murray Hodgson (Melbourne)
2nd Place – Duck Number 357
John (Royal Hotel)
3rd Place – Duck Number 99
John Schmidt (Melbourne)
A fantastic total of $6605 was raised for our school. The Easter Duck Race was generously sponsored by the Yarrawonga Holiday Park, Club Mulwala and Mulwala Ski Club. A big thank you to ticket sellers and our expert boat drivers/course marshals.
All year levels from prep to 12 got behind the event and the support of the school community is greatly appreciated. The ducks are taking are well earned rest and will return in 2019 for their 25th Easter Race.
We would also like to thank Steve, Jodie and the Bigger kids for snapping up the red duck for $120 in the hotly contested auction prior to the race.
2019 Annual Easter Duck Race turns 25 !!
The 2019 Easter Duck Race will be held on Sunday 21 April at 11.30 am at the Yarrawonga Holiday Park Boat Ramp.
Every year our Parents and Friends Association hold the annual Easter Duck Race. Now in it’s 25th year it is a sight to be hold, when 500 yellow ducks and one red duck (which is auctioned on the day) are released on the Murray River (near the Yarrawonga Holiday Park Boat Ramp) and make their way down to the finish line, with 1st duck crossing the line guaranteeing the holder a whopping $500. If more than one person has the winning duck each person will receive $500.
Tickets are only $5.00 each.
