On Thursday 23 November, over 140 Year 12 parents gathered in the Chapel Narthex to celebrate and acknowledge the end of their child’s educational journey at Concordia College. While their children were up in The Suaviter enjoying their Valedictory Dinner, parents were enjoying an evening of reflection over the last 12 months and hearing from our Principal Lester Saegenschnitter one last time.
Alongside members of the P&F, a group of Year 10 and 11 parents volunteered to assist with this event, which was a fabulous networking opportunity for them as well.
Guests were treated to a gorgeous selection of finger foods and fine wines, a perfect way to celebrate their child’s completion of school. We wish all of our Year 12 students every success in their journey ahead and thank their parents for supporting them through this extremely busy year.
Community Engagement and Events Officer
The Silk Flag Artistic project is an initiative created in response to our College amalgamation, with a focus on the spirit of reconciliation. Year 9 and 10 students have been designing and creating the flags in consultation with Stephanie Bromley (Art Teacher) and with feedback provided from Bonnie Sleep (artist). The flags will be used as a symbol of our joint-campus connection and the theme of reconciliation. They will be utilized at public events including Chapel and Assemblies across both campuses. This will benefit the well-being of the school community as a representation of how the Primary and Secondary campuses are one.
On Friday 1 December, over 85 members of the Class of 2012 returned to Concordia for their 5 Year reunion. The group enjoyed a casual gathering in the new Art Courtyard and then ventured off on a tour of the new Nautilus Centre. It was wonderful to see so many of the year group and several of their teachers catching up on what was a lovely evening!
We are also looking forward to welcoming the Class of 2007 back to Concordia this Friday to celebrate their 10 year reunion.
