The Christ Church community gathered in great spirit this week to honour the graduating Class of 2018 at their final assembly.

Speaking in the Chapel, Principal Alan Jones congratulated the boys on their academic and co-curricular achievements, thanking them for being exceptional role models.

Academic and merit prizes were awarded to boys who excelled throughout the year with Dux of the School, the Rosalie Helen Parry Memorial Prize, this year being awarded to William Hu.

In his final assembly speech, Captain of School Matthew Tissiman acknowledged the graduating cohort, stating, “We have been challenged, coached and mentored by the best, to be the best that each of us can be and to help others.”

“I hope you take the special memories, the learning experiences; the lifelong friendships made here and let these help carry you on the next stage of your life.”

Guest of Honour and old boy Professor Peter Leedman (’74) shared some wisdom with the boys, stating that “Life is always an improvisation and you never know what’s going to happen next” and “dare to dream big.”

During the evening, the Valedictory Service and Dinner provided the boys, parents and staff a final opportunity to celebrate their time at Christ Church.

We wish the Class of 2018 all the best for their future endeavours and look forward to their continuing relationship with the School as old boys.

Watch the Year 12 cohort take part in their final ‘Linga’ at the conclusion of this week’s Assembly in Honour of Year 12.
