PLC Sydney Senior students, staff and parents gathered together on Wednesday 21 September to farewell the graduating Year 12 Class of 2016.
Following an Acknowledgement of Country by 2017 School Captain, Sandra Magro, Principal, Dr Paul Burgis, welcomed guests to the special assembly.
The Senior Chamber Orchestra provided a music interlude with a performance of Movement 1 from Palladio composed by Karl Jenkins, which was followed by a reading of Philippians 1:1-11 by 2016 School Captain, Lucy Rowse. College Chaplain, Mrs Cassandra Morphew, then spoke about the importance of faith in finding your true purpose and led the school community in prayer.
Students Grace Khoury-Harb (Year 8), Rebekah Kang (Year 10) and Sandra Magro (Year 11) each provided a unique and heartfelt reflection on their relationship with Year 12, it's clear they have been a supportive and encouraging year group. Amelia Diskoras (Year 12) and Gisella Candi (Year 12) then spoke on behalf of the students who commenced at PLC Sydney in Reception or Kindergarten, after which the group presented the Junior School with a donation to go towards the bird bath.
Lucy Rowse talked fondly about her time at the College, and the friendships and memories amongst the Year 12 cohort. In her final act as School Captain she handed the ceremonial urn, symbolising School Spirit, to Sandra Magro.
After singing the school song, 'God Be With You' for the last time, each Year 12 student was presented with a Bible by Dr Burgis and rose by Sandra Magro.
Following the assembly, students, parents and staff enjoyed a light lunch and bid their final farewells around the Camphor Laurel Tree.
The PLC Sydney Community would like to thank the Year 12 Class of 2016 for their significant contribution to the College. We wish all students the very best in their HSC examinations and every success for the future.
