As the term draws to a close, we farewell the inaugural Year 12 Graduands of St Agnes Catholic High School.
As a cohort, they are the realisation of the hopes that were held for so long by many families and staff that students would be able to complete their education at the same school where they began their secondary journey. They leave us with blessings and with confidence that the values, knowledge and faith that has been nurtured at St Agnes will serve them well as they leave our gates for the final time to begin the next stage of their lives. As a community, we could not be more proud of our first cohort, I wish them well as they begin the final preparations for their HSC examinations.
Next term Year 11 begin the Year 12 classes and Year 10 will finalise their selection for their own HSC journey, and so like that, St Agnes has become a 7-12 High School, rich in faith, culture and developing in traditions.
Congratulations also go to our new 2021 School Captains Julian Tan and Bianca Fragomeli.
Our community continues to grow with waiting lists now in place for most years. We look forward to being able to move into the new building next term. The Performance Hub includes purpose built spaces which will be welcomed by our music and dance students. We have also learnt that the rebuild of the Roberts building - which will provide state of the art TAS and Art facilities should begin by the start of 2021. Exciting times ahead!
I wish all students a well earned break and look forward to seeing them return on Monday 12 October.
