Year 12 Class of 2020

We sadly farewelled our Year 12 Class of 2020 last Tuesday at their Final Assembly before they commenced their preparations for the VCE exams which started this week. It was a great opportunity to acknowledge them together and wish them all the best as they begin the next stage of their adult life.
Given the current restrictions, it was a very different Final Assembly for our Year 12 Class of 2020 as they were really the only ones present. We live streamed the Final Assembly for our Foundation to Year 11 classes and out to the parents/guardians and families of our Year 12 students. We hope that our Year 12 parents/guardians and families felt a part of this important tradition. 

It was lovely also to see our Foundation and Year 1 students celebrate with the Year 12 students outside by throwing streamers and cheering them out of Luther Hall (of course while being COVID-Safe).

We wish our Year 12 Class of 2020 all the best now as they complete their VCE exams and encourage them to make the necessary short-term sacrifices to give themselves every opportunity to get their personal best result. 

2021 College Leaders

As is our tradition, our 2020 College Leaders handed over this leadership responsibility to the 2021 College Leaders at the Year 12 Class of 2020 Final Assembly. Congratulations to our 2021 College Leaders:

  • College Captains: Lauren Coyle & Samuel Decker
  • College Vice Captains: Hannah Chick & Liam Davies

I would also like to acknowledge the amazing job that our 2020 College Leaders, Annika Knight, Hannah Bothe, Sophie Coope and Macauly Hampton did through the normal challenges of Year 12 plus the additional ones with COVID-19 and Remote Learning. They have continued to build on the amazing legacy that our College Leaders have developed over time.

End of Year Events

Unfortunately, our end of year events will also look very different to ensure the College is COVID-safe. As it is still not permissible to have visitors on site, our Carols@theCollege event planned for Tuesday 1st December has been cancelled. The Valedictory, Primary and Secondary award services will all proceed but sadly, without families in attendance. We will live stream these services to our families. 

Yours in Christ, 

Mr John Thompson
