Thanksgiving/ Graduation Mass

posted Dec 7, 2017, 3:12 AM by Principal account
A reminder that the final day of Term 4 for students is tomorrow, 8th December.

We will be commencing the day with a Thanksgiving/ Graduation Mass at 9:00am in St Dominic's Church, which everyone is invited to attend. The mass is an opportunity for our school community to come together and give thanks for the year that has passed and to also congratulate and farewell our 2017 graduating students.

During the ceremony after mass, the new 2018 student leadership team will be announced along with the faction captains and ministry roles. The students will form a guard of honour for our Year 6’s as they leave and head straight to a special farewell ceremony on the oval for both the students and parents. Following this there is a special morning tea in the hall for the students to enjoy.

As part of the the Year 6's special farewell ceremony on the oval, the students release balloons in to the sky. We have once again managed to source 100% biodegradable balloons that biodegrade at about the same rate as a leaf from an oak tree. The Year 6s will be releasing their balloons without ribbon to ensure that we are engaging in Earth-friendly practices.

We hope that you can make it for this special event in the St Dominic's School calendar.
