In a special video message, the executive director of schools, Greg Whitby wishes Year 12 students the best for their exams and future endeavours, reminding them of the great gift of Catholic schooling.
‘Your years at school are not just to achieve the Higher School Certificate or attain an ATAR,’ said Greg. ‘As beneficiaries of a quality Catholic education, you are now on a mission to make the world a better place and to bring the Catholic world view to bear on what you do no matter where you go in the future.’
