Year 10 Graduation

On Tuesday 6 December, we celebrated the Year 10 graduation. The traditional Graduation Mass was celebrated by Fr. Michael Sierakowski, Parish Priest of Holy Trinity Parish. The students were then presented with their Semester 2 reports and subject awards.

The night’s success was thanks to the efforts of so many staff who have worked for months behind the scenes. Thanks to Miss Natalie Bates, our Graduation Coordinator, for organising the Speech Night, the catering and the decorations, Miss Marie Ward for preparing the graduation packs for all of the Year 10s and Mr Martin Callanan for organising the mass.

My special thanks goes to the Year 10 team of Miss Natalie Bates, Mr Martin Callanan, Miss Jess Payne, Mr Rob McClelland, Mr Barry Wood, Mr Damian Perry, Miss Mary Atwell and Mr Simon Donlen for their dedication, effort and help with the young men throughout this year. Their pastoral support and encouragement has enabled this group of young men to achieve many personal goals as well as academic success.

This success does not happen in isolation. Thank you to all the staff who taught Year 10. They have helped this year level achieve the results they deserve. I must also thank the parents, guardians and families for their support and encouragement which is vital to the ongoing development of the young men.

Congratulations to the Class of 2016. Good Luck and God bless.
