FAREWELL TO THE CLASS OF 2022.
As another school year draws quickly to a close, formal classes for Year 12 students concluded and the traditional Graduation events were held this week.
Students and their families gathered with staff for the Year 12 Graduation Mass on Thursday. This is the penultimate formal College event before the much anticipated Graduation Ball.
The Graduation Mass is a significant event and perhaps the most special as it is a time when we openly celebrate St Michael’s College as a Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition and recognise the unique gifts of the 2022 graduands. It is a tradition at this event to present the De La Salle Award to the student who best personifies the spirit and values of the College. This award is the highest award offered by the College and in 2022, the award was presented to College Captain, Massimo Cavallo.
Massimo was exemplary in his leadership, service and dedication to the role of College Captain. He actively supported the religious and social justice initiatives of the College, was committed to study and achieved at a level commensurate with his ability, as well as being an active contributor to the co-curricular program and wider life of the College. Massimo set a fine example to his peers, and we congratulate and thank him for his service to the College.
Other members of the 2022 cohort were recognised for their achievements at the Graduation Assembly which was held during Week 1 of this term. We acknowledge and congratulate the award winners below and also thank them for their contributions to the College.
