Year 12 Final Assembly
This morning’s Graduation Assembly drew the curtain on 13 years of schooling for 41 Year 12 students.
The farewell celebrated the achievements of a well-respected cohort who have excelled in the classroom, on the sporting field, in the creative arts and in community service.
A packed Leadership Centre saw a range of songs, speeches and video presentations from across the school pay tribute to the impact of Year 12 on the College.
And while the focus was on the past and present, speakers including Lighthouse Senior Leader, Paul Bartlett, shared leadership lessons for a fulfilling future.
College Principal, Steve Walton, said that the Class of 2015 was remarkable for the scope of their achievements. “This group has had a reputation for consistency and the pursuit of excellence all through their time at Cedars. I can point to half a dozen accomplished musicians, a few elite level sportspeople, the development of leaders well beyond their years and examples of community service participation that have been truly felt outside these College gates.”
“And while we acknowledge some outstanding academic results, I can identify a number of students who had to overcome significant challenges to make enormous gains in their learning through sheer persistence. That is every bit as significant,” Mr Walton continued.
“The class of 2015 has left a deep footprint in the history of the College.”
Year 12 will throw off their graduation caps and let down their hair at their formal at City Beach Function Centre tonight.
