Among the Old Boys network there is and has always been a strong loyalty to Churchie. This was again evident at the 28th running of the Prep School’s Billy Cart Grand Prix on Oaklands Parade. The event is a highlight on the annual calendar not only for the students but also their parents, so it was fantastic to see so many Old Boys watching and cheering if not for their sons competing for the coveted plaques that go with winning, perhaps it was the opportunity to claim victory over each other.
