Farewell Class of 2017
Last week brought to a close the 13 years of formal schooling for our class of 2017.
To recognise this significant achievement, our Year 12 students were the guests of honour at a whole school assembly and Valedictory Night.
Our Year 12 students also took the time to celebrate the completion of schooling with a celebration morning here at school in which they dressed up in costumes, completed a 'lap of honour' of the school during class time and attended a morning tea with teachers.
I congratulate all of our graduating students for reaching this significant milestone in their life and encourage them to carry the values and fond memories of the College into the future. Completing secondary school is an achievement that only 80% of students in Victoria are able to obtain. Government information reveals that the benefit of finishing secondary school results in an average of an additional $800, 000 in lifetime earnings compared to a student who leaves school prior to Year 12.
