These Video were Created for the many
Perth Amboyans that 
walked the Sacred Halls of Ivy.

We came into these Halls not Knowing,
but came out 4 years later with Knowledge, 
not just by Books or Teachers but from each other.

As Classmates we arrived,
 but left as Friends

SPECIAL THANKS
to ALL that was Part of the
Cavalcade of Music
