As our Year 12 students begin their External Exams, which is a component of the new Senior Assessment system being introduced this year across Queensland, it signals to us that we are now only a matter of weeks away from saying farewell to our Year 12 cohort.

Our Year 12 students have faced significant challenges this year and we are so proud of the resilience, determination and character shown in pushing, on despite the challenges and the opposition. Please continue to uphold our Year 12 cohort in prayer as they complete numerous end of year exams in the coming weeks.

Recently, we have been blessed with numerous opportunities to celebrate and recognise the diverse activities and learning experiences that our students have participated in. This has included year level camps, various excursions/incursions, sporting events, the Genesis Dance competition Rise Up, Strings in Spring and our Years 7-12 Co-curricular Celebration Service.  End of year celebration events provide us with a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect upon the year that has been, even with its challenges.

Several of our celebration events this year need to be conducted as student-only events due to COVID restrictions. We trust that you will take the opportunity to join us online for these special events. They can be accessed by logging onto Parent Lounge selecting the School Links tab, and General Links.

  • 18 November                          Senior School Presentation Ceremony
  • 20November                           Year 12 Valedictory Service
  • 24 November                          Year 3-4 Celebration Service
  • 25 November                          Middle School Presentation Ceremony
  • 25 November                          Year 1-2 Celebration Service
  • 27 November                          Year 5-6 Celebration Service

This year, access to viewing the Pre-Formal Function is not able to be open to our whole community but instead only available to our Year 12 parents/guests by invitation. These events, although they may look different, still allow us to celebrate the students, and we are so grateful that we have been able to proceed and recognise these special moments in time.
