Farewell Year 12

02 Nov 2018

Vice Captain Speaking at Year 12 Farewell

Family members, and friends, from near and far came to witness the graduation of their son after completing 13 years of formal schooling.

It was a very emotional assembly with heartfelt speeches delivered from students and staff alike which was a direct reflection on the calibre of this Year 12 group. They are to be congratulated on their community and charitable efforts for which they managed to raise $54,000  which included approximately $7000 to purchase their ‘gift to the school’, which is a customised marquee for use at school events. A remarkable achievement indeed!

During the assembly Mr Gallagher presented each student with their graduation portfolio and some received ‘first in subject’ certificates whilst others were awarded special prizes.

At the conclusion of the assembly our Year 11 students formed the traditional guard of honour to send the boys on their way. This was then followed by a light lunch in the Refectory.

Miss Sarah Allen, the Year 12 coordinator, is to be thanked for her dedication and leadership of the 2018 Farrer cohort. Miss Allen is whole-hearted and selfless. She is hard-working and patient and she insists on a standard being met.

Thank you also to all the staff who contributed to the organisation of this important highlight of the school year.

Finally, we wish year 12 every success in the upcoming HSC exams.
