Farewell Year 12 Green

This week we have celebrated the Green House Class of 2020 as they prepare to complete their final year of schooling at Waverley.

As a group, their behaviours, character and positive attitude have ensured Waverley was safe, secure, optimistic and courageous. The Class of 2020 has helped create this environment in which those ideals of safety, security, and hope exist. For this, I will always be deeply indebted to each and every one of them. This is the greatest gift they could have left their House.

I am honoured to say we are proud of the boys’ many achievements over the years, their countless accomplishments in their studies, co-curricular and sporting activities. I truly hope that each Green student recognises the fact they have served the College well. 2020 is a year that required them to be adaptable, compassionate, thoughtful, but also strong, courageous, and resilient. They were able to successfully navigate through their senior years in the most difficult of circumstances and their achievements are a testament to their abilities.

Our very best wishes go with Year 12 as they make their final preparations for the HSC and then as they take on life beyond school in pursuit of their dreams. The Class of 2020 have been tested and despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, they did not falter and they kept going. Because of this, I know that you are ready for the world and what lies ahead of every one of you.

I appreciate and acknowledge all Green House Parents for their support of the School. Certainly, nobody could have envisioned this for the Class of 2020 when the school year began. But what I can say is that COVID-19 cannot silence the creativity of your sons or lessen their achievements.

As parents, your contribution to the triumphs of the year group cannot be underestimated. You have nurtured your sons, given them a moral code and the strength to reframe setbacks and move forward. For this, I thank you.

Your future is as bright as you want it to be. It can be sad to say goodbye to graduates. However, life must move on and it should, because bigger things await beyond the walls of Waverley. As a house, we wish you all the best with your exams and thank you for your service to Waverley College.

Farewell and thank you, Year 12.
