Farewell To Our Graduating Class Of 2021

November 11 marked the official last day of school for our Year 13 students. While they spent the morning in classrooms with their teachers and peers preparing for their upcoming exams, our Year 13 cohort came together in the afternoon to celebrate their learning journey at Saint Kentigern, a place that has been ‘home’ to a number of them since their primary school years. The Graduation afternoon started with a Chapel service delivered by College Chaplain Reverend Smith, before students were led by fellow Year 13 pipers, Cameron Dean and Charlotte Cornwall, and drummers, Sarina Wang and Nic Lacey, to the No 1 Sports Field for the annual tradition of forming a giant ‘human 2021′ for an aerial photo, representing the graduating Class of 2021.

Students were then treated to lunch before gathering for one last time with their tutor groups to receive their graduation memorabilia; Old Collegian ties for the boys and tartan scarves for the girls, and a personalised ‘Class of 2021’ hoodie.

Students then enjoyed an afternoon of fun having their shirts autographed by their peers, followed by a student-led awards ceremony.

The Year 13 Graduation afternoon would not be complete without the Old Collegian induction with President of the Old Collegians, Hayden Butler greeting and welcoming our Year 13 cohort to the ranks of the Old Collegians via a video message due to the current pandemic restrictions.

There were mixed emotions with smiles and tears on the faces of our graduates as Acting College Principal, Mr Duncan McQueen, gave his closing remarks. Mr McQueen acknowledged students for their commitment to learning and for living the Saint Kentigern Values which will form an important foundation as they begin the next big journey of their lives. “Be the Daughters and Sons of Saint Kentigern 2021 who will serve and lead with distinction in the years to come,” added Mr McQueen.

We wish our Year 13s all the very best as they take advantage of these last few days of study leave to prepare for their final exams.
