Vale Class of 2019

Year 12 Final Days at De La Salle

On Monday, 21 October the 2019 Year 12 cohort celebrated their year with much fun and excitement at the Sidetracked entertainment venue. In keeping with the light‐hearted theme for the day, many students took the opportunity to attend in fancy dress. Without a doubt, the go‐karts and laser tag were the most popular! The students thoroughly enjoyed their time together and the opportunity to share in some fun and laughter with their House Coordinators and other staff.

On Wednesday, 23 October the graduating Year 12 cohort and their families attended the Valedictory Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral. Following the Mass, families made their way to the Sofitel where the Valedictory Dinner was held in the Grand Ballroom. There were a number of significant speeches and awards presented throughout the evening.
