Lemana Day

Thank you to all students, staff and families who supported this week’s Lemana Day so enthusiastically. It was one of those school days that will be forever remembered by all who experienced it. A large number of Collegians, including some who were attending the College in 1941, toured the Campus and learned more about the school in 2021 from Year 5 student leaders and students in many classes. Current students learned more about schooldays of the 1940’s and the 1940-1970 era from our visitors, displays of memorabilia from the College archives, and classroom history activities prepared for the day. Playground games from the past were also enjoyed during recess and lunch break times.

Special thanks to the many families who supported students in wearing period attire and bringing school bags and other artefacts from yesteryear.

Year 12 Leavers Assembly

Thursday 28 October is the final school day for our Year 12 students. On this day, all Year 12’s who once attended the Junior School will return for their Leavers Assembly which is led by current Year 5 students. This tradition is a highlight of the school year for all involved as we farewell students who in some cases have spent 14-15 years at the College.
