To celebrate the achievements of our Year 12 students, on Tuesday 22 October we held our whole school farewell assembly in our gym with the majority of our Year 12 parents in attendance to recognise this significant occasion – the conclusion of six years of secondary schooling. The Year 12 cohort have been wonderful ambassadors and have contributed so much to our College, having represented us in countless sporting, cultural and academic events. They have worked really hard this year with our emphasis on high expectations in everything we do and we are all proud of them. On behalf of the whole College Community, I would like to wish all Year 12 students every success for the examination period, which will begin on Wednesday 30 October. I am confident they will all achieve the VCE or VCAL results they deserve and have worked towards all year with much persistence. No matter what their pathway on leaving Mordialloc, as long as they continue to strive to achieve the best they can be satisfied. I would like to congratulate all of our Year 12 leaders. Levi and Elizabeth as School Captains, Ben and Sarah as Vice-Captains, Liam, Alex and Hunter for performing arts, Ella for visual arts, Charlie and Caleb for sport, Zoe and Albert for special events, Lochlann for environment, Billy for ICT, Toby for International Students, Cailiosa for VCAL and our four house captains, Adnan, Jasmine, Lucy and Camille. They have been proactive leaders for our school and have worked to the best of their ability in managing the challenges of combining Year 12 studies with the responsibilities of student leadership. Another big event, the Valedictory Dinner is to be held this Friday night at Southern Golf Club. This night will be an opportunity for parents, teachers and students to get together in a formal setting to reflect on the past year and recognise the achievements of our Year 12 students. The class of 2019 have made a wonderful contribution to our school and we are proud of each and every one of them. I would like to thank Director of Senior School Jo Greenhalgh, Year 12 Coordinator Tim Randell, Pathways Coordinator Emma White, Assistant Principal Andrew Moffat and all of our Year 12 teachers who have all worked tirelessly to support our Year 12 students this year.
We look forward to celebrating the achievements of the graduating class for 2019 at this year’s awards night on December 12, when all students will be presented on stage in academic gowns in front of the rest of the College Community. This also allows the community a final opportunity to wish them well for the future.
