The Class of 2021 celebrated its Graduation Mass on Friday 3 December at an event that included the presentation of the 2021 Perpetual Awards.
Held in a marquee on the St Peter's Campus oval, the Mass was celebrated by College Chaplain Fr James Antony with a limited number of parents in attendance due to COVID restrictions and the size of the venue. In his remarks to the congregation, Fr James encouraged the students of Year 12 to "look back with gratitude, and look forward with hope" and mentioned that they were now the "captain of their own ship."
To conclude the Mass, Principal Michael Lee prayed a blessing over the Graduating Class as the students prepare to take the first step in their journey beyond school.
After Mass, several students were presented with the College's Perpetual Awards. These awards recognise the outstanding contribution the recipients have made to the College during their time with us.
Elite Athlete Awards were also presented to Stephanie Brettargh and Tom Shakespeare.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
