Farewell and Good Luck!

Last week marked the end-of-school celebrations for our Class of 2022 as part of their rite of passage. No more maroon blazer, no more House time, no more assemblies and no more cheesies from the Cafeteria.

Wednesday saw the entire School come out to form a guard of honour to wish our Year 12s well for their future endeavours. On their way to their final Chapel Service, the cohort weaved their way through the campus to high fives, cheers, clapping and a few tears. Our littlest members of the School even threw rose petals over them!

Friday was our last chance to come together with the Year 12s as an entire year group. The morning was full of celebration and activities, with the farewells culminating at the Valedictory for a memorable evening. Our evening began with the Class of 2022 processing to the beautiful voices of our Take Note Choir singing 'Si Si Ni Moja'. With the formalities underway, our Head Prefects, Libby Giles and Joe McMahon spoke on behalf of the Year 12s, sharing their memories from their time at St Mark's and hopes for the future. We were also treated to wonderful musical interludes from Year 12 students Olivia Paterson and James Bradfield. As the evening came to a close, Principal Mr Davies thanked the families for their support and wished our Class of 2022 well as they leave the gates of St Mark's.

Some of our students will now head into their ATAR exams, whilst others have concluded their education at St Mark's. It has been an honour to be a part of our Year 12s journey, and we are grateful for all the times we have shared.

As our leavers of 2022, we wish you all the best for the exciting next chapter in your lives.
