Pastoral Care and Organisation

As the College community is about to farewell the Graduating Class of 2015, it is timely to recognise the achievement of students from this cohort across the various aspects of College life.

On Tuesday 20 October the College will stop and gather to farewell our Year 12 students in a final assembly of celebration and congratulations. In this assembly a number of significant awards will be presented to outstanding students in the areas of sport, academic excellence, community service and leadership.

On Wednesday 21 October after the Graduation Mass at St Ignatius Church, Richmond, Year 12 students and their parents and staff will gather at Etihad Stadium for the Valedictory Dinner.

At this occasion the five most significant College Awards will be presented. The awards are:
