For the first time Orange Anglican Grammar were unable to welcome the families to take part in students’ farewell celebration. The school created something so special that our students would be able to set aside their covid-related grief and enjoy their final moments in a very different way.
Covid aside, they planned very memorable Valedictory celebrations.
The Headmaster, Rev Louise Stringer noted that “with some clever thinking from our Year 12s and our staff team we think we managed to celebrate this group in a way that best planted the ‘Year 12 2020’ stamp on our history books!”
A highlight of the day was the annual presentation of the Year 12 Gift to the school; an impressive set of soccer goals which represents the soccer mad Year 12 cohort who regularly led competition on the top soccer pitch. They also gifted each stage with a signed soccer ball, complete with a ‘shoot out’ against a Year 12 student! As you can see Kindergarten were victorious!
Given the eased restrictions a gathering on Wednesday 25th of November at the Orange Ex-Services Club to celebrate the graduating class at the Year 12 Valedictory Dinner. This is the opportunity for the families and student’s, along with some select staff members to celebrate the culmination of the Year 12 journey.
