Last Friday evening, the College staged its annual Graduation Ceremony for our outgoing 2023 Year 12 students.
It truly was a very special night for our Graduates and their families. The whole event and programme highlighted so many of the strengths that make Chisholm the wonderful community it is.
The Eucharistic celebration captured the atmosphere of thanksgiving perfectly with Father Ziggy’s homily resonating so well with the intrinsic values we try to instil in our students across their full journey. Many parents, staff and students themselves commended the amazing accompaniment and quality of the music and singing from our choir and the involvement of everyone contributed to it being a very moving tribute.
With the formalities concluded, everyone moved to the outside courtyard where close to 900 people mingled and once again enjoyed another exceptional supper provided by our Canteen staff. It was fantastic to be part of this major milestone for our latest proud Graduates of Chisholm Catholic College.
It has been a privilege to be a part of this group’s journey and shake each individual’s hand on the evening and wish them well. I believe our College’s Vision for Learning captures the fundamental traits which we hope to recognise and see in each of our Graduating students as they move on. We share that vision for the growth in each Chisholm student along the way, grounded in foundations of faith, with a strong understanding of what it means to serve, to be compassionate, to be people of good character and to be lifelong learners.
My thanks to everyone involved and particularly Mr Adam Williamson, Head of Year 12, ably assisted by Mrs Nicole Huggins, who have played such a vital role in seeing these students through in their final year. On behalf of everyone in our community, I also thank all of our staff who contributed and played their part in their own way.
We wish each and every one of our Graduating Year 12s the very best for the future and God’s blessings.
Mr John Bormolini
