Graduation Celebrations

Last week we farewelled our Year 6 students.  Firstly, with a Candle Ceremony where the Grade 6 students formally handed over the leadership to the future Grade 6 students of 2024. All Grade sixes were commended for the leadership shown and the strong bonds they had created with their Prep Buddies.

Then, following the Graduation Mass on Wednesday, celebrated by Fr Avinash, Mr Dortmans thanked the School Captains Charlea & Jai, for their leadership, making special note of the growth in their confidence throughout the year.
