Year 12 Graduation Ceremony 2017
On Thursday of our last week of term, Week 10, we held our Graduation Ceremony for Year 12, 2017. This event was a joyous celebration of the students schooling at Korowal, and their families.
For Charlie, Callum, Violet, Suri, and their families, Korowal has been their school from kindy. Over the years, others have come and gone, and formed the group that is Year 12, 2017. This includes Raph, Rommenie, Jasmine, Conal, Will, George, Tom, Hannah, Jaz, and Saskia. We are very proud of them. Korowal has been their chrysalis, the shelter that nurtured their transformation from childhood to adulthood.
Before I came to Korowal, I had moved around quite a few schools- in Germany, New Zealand, and finally Australia. When I started here, I had one big aim: To see my students grow up over the years. Now I am standing next to Kirsty, one of my very first Bio students in the early days of Korowal, 1990, 27 years ago.
It is so amazing, to have witnessed our tiny school survive and prosper over the decades. There is no place like Korowal, where there is such acceptance of each other and such respect for everyone’s individuality, - including mine.
