Last week we said to farewell to our graduating Class of 2019. In what can only be described as a ‘Festival of Leaving’ our Year 12 class commenced their final week with a special breakfast hosted by members of our local Uniting Church. Soon after they set off on a two-day adventure to enjoy the company of their cohort in the relaxed setting of Coolangatta. Stand-up paddleboarding, dinner, shopping and movies were the order of their two days which allowed our Year 12s to unwind before returning to the College for the more formal events.
The Valedictory evening started with a reflective themed Chapel service led by Rev Willie Liebenberg. The spring sunset did not disappoint as our graduates and their families mingled by the river before partaking in a Valedictory feast prepared by College chef, John Rogers.
On their last day as SCOTS PGC students, the College hosted the Final Assembly – an opportunity to look back and come to terms with the fact that their 13 years of schooling had finally reached its pinnacle. Our students sang the College song with gusto and relished the chance to proudly scream their war cry before making their way out through the throng of younger students who were keen to grab one last high five from their Year 12 mates.
