Farewell to Year 12
Today, our College community bid a fond farewell to the Class of 2023 during their ultimate Graduation Assembly held in the Centenary Quad. Each student was introduced by their respective Head of House, and academic achievers were duly acknowledged. To create a fitting tribute, the students departed the Quad with the resonant melodies of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ performed by our College Brass Band and College Choir.
The College’s celebration and farewell of the Year 12 Cohort extended to include parents, grandparents, siblings, and other significant caregivers at a mass held at Mary Immaculate Church. As part of this touching service, the graduates received meaningful gifts—a Waverley College Old Boys’ Union Tie and a Celtic Cross.
In the evening, the students will savour their Valedictory Dinner at Australian Turf Club, Randwick.
Congratulations, Class of 2023, may your journey be marked by unwavering respect and utmost integrity as you step boldly into the future.
Waverley College extends its best wishes to each young man as they prepare for their upcoming HSC examinations or start their respective apprenticeship.
May you find a life grounded in Virtus Sola Nobilitat – Virtue is its own reward.
Good luck and God Bless.
