Welcome back to Term 4

It was great to see the many smiling faces return to campus on Monday 3 October to begin the final term for 2022. Our Year 12s (and those in other year levels studying a Unit 3 and Unit 4 subject) had spent the two weeks of the holidays busily studying and preparing for their upcoming examinations. This included the trial examinations that we ran in the second week where all our Year 12s were rostered through a timetable of mock examinations as part of their practice and revision process. These trial examinations are run in the same manner as their VCAA examinations later this month, helping to ensure that our students are aware of the format and procedures.

Year 12 Leavers’ Assembly

On Friday 7 October we held our Year 12 Leavers’ Assembly where we had the entire school (Prep – Yr 12) assembled in CM Wood to congratulate and celebrate the Class of 2022. The assembly included a special welcome to the Year 12s followed by reflections from two of our longer serving students on their experiences through Tintern and Southwood in the earlier days.

There was a video that played photos from the years past of all the Year 12s bringing many of them to tears as they all reflected on their own journey to this point. To conclude the assembly our Class of 2022 were provided with a guard of honour from the rest of the school, including our ELC students. This guard of honour snaked it’s way around the Junior School buildings and back up to the Senior College with all students and staff from the school lining the journey and providing them with celebratory support.
