A Day to Remember… Wishing the Year 12’s Goodbye and Good Luck


Some might say that school is stressful, boring, tedious, and at times... heartbreaking. But what common conceptions say about school simply do not align with how it actually is, regardless of how much one can contest it. Even through all the hard work we as students give here at the College, time and time again we are told how quickly high school goes by.

And those words could not be any truer...

This week, Good Samaritan Catholic College said goodbye to one of the most loved and respected year groups of all… Year 12. Throughout their time as the leaders of the College, they had demonstrated the key values of being a Good Samaritan. Their consistent care towards others, their determined drive to accomplish their goals and ecstatic effort towards their own schoolwork, whether or not it was being marked, was something that we could all look up to as students.

The Year 12 Cohort of 2019 graduated on Wednesday, September 25th. For each of them, their day was one of celebration, commemoration and emotion. There is no doubt that their graduation day will be something they remember for the rest of their lives going forward.

The liturgy contained arguably the most emotional part of the day. This liturgy contained a variety of heartwarming, comedic and celebratory moments for not only the graduating class, but for the entire school as a whole. Siblings of the Year 12 Students came forward and spoke about their relationship with their own brothers and sisters, making the school laugh, clap and cheer for what they each had to say.
