There was a real buzz in the air on Tuesday night, as we celebrated with the Year 6 students of 2016 at their special Graduation Celebration in the hall.  Families and teachers joined the Graduates for the various student performances and the awarding of Graduation Certificates and Scholarships.  Each year we are fortunate to be supported by Susan Alberti and The Returned Services League (RSL) to enable us to award students with scholarships to support their academic progress at secondary college.  Congratulations to the following award winners for 2016:
