On a balmy Friday evening Year 9 students, their parents/guardians, their mentors and other family members gathered at Point Peron for the ‘Calling and Departure’ ceremony where students consider the behaviours and attitudes they are ready to let go of, and to begin considering the adult they will become and the contribution that they might make to the world.

With a backdrop of the sun setting over Mangles Bay, students said thank you to their parents by way of a letter of ‘Gratitude’ and parents shared five significant objects that represented their child’s journey so far.

The evening was a wonderful way to begin the Rite Journey program where students begin the exciting journey from childhood to adult hood.
