On Tuesday 24 October, our Year 12s celebrated their final day with the traditional Year 12 Breakfast, which saw a number of students arrive in costume. Their costumes were varied, including Where’s Wally, the Scooby Doo gang, several Nuns and a number of Care Bears.
During this breakfast, the girls opened their time capsules from Year 7, which resulted in a number of laughs and tears: while the boys played their last game of basketball at the School. The Valedictory Service was an appropriate ending to their final day, in which the students were officially presented to the School community and receiving a sapling as a gift; the saplings were presented to the Years 12s by our Year 3 students.
The Year 12s are now in “SWOT VAC”, with their examinations beginning next week on Monday 30 October for many IB students at 12pm; and for most VCE students on Wednesday 1st November for VCE students, with the English examination beginning at 9am.
Students are reminded of the importance of maintaining a balanced approach to “SWOT VAC”, in terms of studying, eating well and exercising; as well as making the most of the resources available to them, particularly making appointment times with their class teachers in making appointments to go over content.
The last formal event for the Year 12s will be the Valedictory Dinner at Leonda by the Yarra on Friday 24 November.
