Principal’s News 8 November 2019

On Tuesday 22 October, we celebrated Mass with the College community followed by the Year 12 Graduation. We were fortunate to have Fr Fr Jim Acreman celebrate the Graduation Mass. On behalf of the entire community, I extend best wishes to all students over the examination period.

As part of the proceedings this year, the inaugural presentation of the Old Collegian’s Tie was made to Graduands. This silk tie came beautifully presented in a specially designed box.

During the week, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to present Jake Keogh wth his Old Collegian’s Tie.
