Graduation Letter to Year 12 Students and Families

30 October 2020


Dear Year 12 Students and Families,

It is with a huge amount of pleasure and excitement that we can now announce that the Year 12 Graduation Ceremony for 2020 is happening.

The latest lifting of restrictions has given us the window that we were hoping for and will allow us to gather all Year 12 students and staff in the one location to conduct a graduation ceremony.

The details of this event are as follows:

Date:             Thursday December 3

Time:            6:00 pm concluding by 7:30 pm

Venue:         Mercy Stadium, Knight Street Campus, Notre Dame College

Dress:          Formal

Students must arrive at the College by 5:30 pm to ensure a prompt start at 6:00 pm.

Unfortunately, the restrictions still do not allow family and friends to be present and we are not able to conduct any formal gathering outside of this ceremony.  Therefore, the ceremony will be live streamed to our families and community, information and links will be provided closer to the event.

We will be setting up the Mercy Stadium in a way that if there are any further lifting of restrictions and it becomes possible to include a few family members, then we can do this at short notice.

I wish to sincerely thank our organising committee for this event which includes three members of our College Board, Mark Washington, Helen Crilly, and Rashidi Sumali, parent representative Rosey Kilmartin, our College Captains for 2020, who never cease to have amazing ideas and enthusiasm, and finally our staff members, Les Billings, Jen Frisardi, Leisa Gill, Hayden Frizzell and Tracey Bell for all the hard work and dedication to ensuring that we celebrate this important event in the most respectful and appropriate manner.

We sincerely hope that we can make this event a highlight for all of our students and their families and it becomes a night to remember for all the right reasons.

Please contact Les Billings at the school if you have any questions regarding this event.


Mr. John Cortese
