Congratulations to Alvaro (2nd from the left) for winning the Melbourne Cup best-dressed competition. You have won a free surfing lesson. And another congratulations to Tan (far right) who came second and won himself a box of chocolates! You all did a great job and we would like to say thank you to these 5 students for putting in the effort and dressing up.
