As most would know, StJPII recently congratulated and farewelled yet another successful Year 12 cohort at the StJPII Terra Sancta Day and Graduation Ceremony.
Carnival rides and market stalls aside, StJPII/Terra Sancta Day is always a very meaningful and symbolic day for the graduating class of that particular year.
Not only does it mark Year 12s last official day of high school, but it represents the journey through the land of StJPII they have made over the last 7 years, and more so their 13 years of education.
It recognises the young adults they have become, the endless support from their families over the years, the friendships that have flourished and the wisdom they have gained as they prepare to contribute as young adults of the wider community.
Students held their heads with pride from the Graduation Mass shared with the entire College to cutting the graduation cake and partying as the seniors of the College on StJPII Terra Sancta Day.
Then after years of hard work and homework, it finally came the time where your name is called at the Graduation Ceremony, and behind the bright lights and your cheesy smile as the audience stares at you, you think to yourself - I made it.
Rather than give you a recount of events, we thought readers would truly understand the significance of these events by hearing from the students themselves.
An album of photos will soon be uploaded to our StJPII Facebook page!
