In our fourth episode, we look back on 2022 at our favourite moments and memories while also looking forward into the new year. To share their thoughts, we’re joined by Year 12 students Neika Henson (Faith and Community Captain) and James Vandermee (Communications & Connections Captain), and our first ever Padua students on the Podcast, Alec McLennan and Savannah Apoderado.
We catch up with College Captains Maddie and Rohan to handover with our new College Captains for 2023, Alana and Billy.
Our performance guest is Year 9 student Ava Fradgley, who performs ‘The Coral Sea’ by Gillock on the piano. We also have games of ‘Finish My Sentence’ and we see how many questions we can get through in 60 seconds in our ‘Ask Me Anything’ speed round.
We bid farewell to the graduating class of 2022 and chat with them about their Year 12 results and plans after school.
