Year 12 Graduation

At the end of last term, at a special Graduation ceremony, students and staff at Pal Buddhist School celebrated the successful completion of the Class of 2015’s school years.

Each graduating student was presented with a plant and seeds by our Principal, Mr Panha Pal, to symbolise the growth that they have achieved so far and the seeds they will plant along the way as they embark on life’s journey.

Each Year 12 graduate was farewelled individually with a brief appraisal of their many great qualities and possible future directions by Mr Hague. Students themselves contributing a motto which they felt spoke for them at this stage of their lives. Sammi Tran’s inspiring comment, “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable” registered with many.

We look forward to hearing from the Class of 2015 as they receive their HSC results and as they decide in which universities they will be enrolling; and we hope they will stay in touch for many years to come.

 

Good luck and farewel to our Year 12s!
