Our thoughts and prayers are with the Year 12 students who will be sitting their final written examinations beginning on Wednesday 26 October and concluding on Wednesday 16 November. Wishing the Class of 2022 every success as our students approach the VCAA examinations. Remember to be confident and focused! As the Class of 2022 enters the world of work or further study, may you always remember to be your best version of yourselves and shine brightly!
