On a beautiful evening last Friday, 9th December, we celebrated 120 Year 6 students, many of whom have been at Vasse PS since Kindy, as they graduated at an official ceremony, in front of family and friends, local dignitaries and guest presenters.
Parents and invited guests filled the Quad in anticipation of the arrival of the Year 6 students.
Deputy Principal Beth Foster opened the ceremony and invited the audience to welcome our latest graduates, as they strolled over to the stage seating for the last time. They walked with pride, dressed to impress, befitting this Year 6 cohort ready to start the next phase of their life in high school next year.
Congratulations to our 2022 Students Councillors; Ava, Oscar, Zalia and Xavier who hosted the formal proceedings with humour and confidence.
Congratulations to all our Award Recipients and all our Year 6 Graduates – you have made us all very proud at Vasse PS and we wish all the very best in your journey to adulthood.
