On Friday 24 May, we held a Celebration Assembly which celebrated the achievements of our students throughout the year. The assembly was opened by our Year 11 Student Councillors, Evangeline Armstrong, Grace Kang, Gabriel Martinez Rivera and Josh Miller.
Our Year 10 music students performed 'Seven Nation Army' and our Year 7 and Year 8 music students performed 'Bellyache' from the musical 'Billy Elliot'. There were also photo displays of our students and their work.
