May Procession – Change of Venue Update – Compulsory for Years 7-12

111th May Procession on Sunday 2 May 2021

111th May Procession in 2021

This Sunday, 1 May marks Waverley College’s 112th celebration of our annual May Procession. This is a sacred celebration of our College founder Blessed Edmund Rice and our devotion to Mary, Jesus’ mother. 

Our special guest at this year’s May Procession is General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK CVO MC (Retd), and we look forward to having many of our Old Boys join us for this special celebration.

Unfortunately, due to the forecasted rain this Sunday, we are relocating this year’s May Procession from the Centenary Quad to the Br Lacey Gymnasium. Regrettably, this reduces capacity.

We will be live-streaming the May Procession for the community, and have made the event compulsory for students in Years 7-12. Students in Years 5-6 therefore, are not required to attend, and are encouraged to watch the May Procession from home.

The May Procession will take place from 12 pm to 1:30 pm, and will be on regardless of the weather. Could students in Years 7-12  please arrive in the Centenary Quadrangle by 11:30am and have their names marked off by their Mentor. Full winter uniform, including blazer and tie, must be worn.
