A Fond Farewell and Best Wishes to the Year 12 Class of 2020

Year 12 students formally finished their 13 years of schooling in late October.

The celebrations were different from what has been done for previous Year 12 cohorts, but students enjoyed their special day and celebration nonetheless.

They delighted in a lunch in homerooms before the formal part of the day began.

Dressed in their academic gown and a graduation sash, each was recognised for their achievements and were presented to the College community as the 2020 graduates. All received a certificate of Year 12 completion and a gift from the College, a book of prayers and reflections for every day of the year, as are all graduating students in Jesuit colleges around Australia.

Farewell and welcome: our graduates also received their “Old Ignatians” alumni pin.

During the assembly they were moved by speeches from the College Captains, Heidi Bakker and Will Palmer, and musical performances by Hannah Vella and a group of music students.

Students then completed a Gratitude Walk around the College. The student body across all year levels and staff formed a guard around the school and congratulated the students on their achievements.

The assembly was live streamed across the College and families were able to watch from home.

Huge congratulations to all involved for their resilience, work ethic, creativity, passion and technical ability demonstrated throughout remote learning. The quality of work you have produced is outstanding.

Unfortunately, we could only interview a few students about their work but celebrate all students involved equally.

A big thank you to Michael Tod and Brenton Reid for creating the Virtual Exhibition and video of artists’ talks.

Well done!
