Year 12 commence final week of classes!

As our Year 12s commence their final week of classes with us, we give thanks to God:

For all the teaching and learning that has taken place in our school,

both in and out of the classroom.


For the talents and gifts that have been shared and

the challenges that have been faced.


For the respect and care that has been given to each and every one of our Year 12s.

We give thanks for the friendships that have just begun and for those that have grown over time.
