Grade 7 Valediction 2013

The Grade 7 Valediction was held on the last day of school. It is a moment in the school year that we recognise our departing Grade 7 group and celebrate their achivements with them. There is always a tinge of sadness at this Assembly that is usually lightened by Mr Webb doing something improbable during his talk to the Grade 7 group and this year was no exception, as he got Mrs Gower-Jackson to shoot a bottle rocket acroos the Auditorium!

Well done to all the prize winners and good luck to all of our Grade 7s in their future endeavours.
