We are delighted to report on the recent activities of our Year 12 cohort at South Coast Baptist College. The students have been actively participating in a variety of events, and we are proud of their achievements and successes. 

Firstly, the Swimming Carnival was a fantastic display of sportsmanship and teamwork. The Year 12 cohort demonstrated excellent engagement in the event, and their enthusiasm was infectious. The students cheered each other on, and their collective spirit was a true representation of the school’s values. We would like to extend our congratulations to all the students who participated, and we hope to see them continue their sporting pursuits beyond school. I was particularly impressed with everyone’s outfits! 

Another tremendous success was the Year 12 Ball. The students looked stunning in their formal attire, and the venue was beautifully decorated. The Ball was a night to remember, with dancing, laughter, and joy. We would like to commend the students on their behaviour during the event, and we thank them for being excellent ambassadors for our school. A special mention to our award winners: 

Beau of the Ball – Bayden Allen 

Belle of the Ball – Adelie Soekinto 

Best Dancer – Lawson Brewer 

Most Hyped – Riley Adams 

In addition to these events, the Year 12 cohort has been fortunate to receive valuable insights into life after school. Red Frogs, an organization dedicated to supporting young people, came to talk to the students about their experiences and the challenges they may face once they leave school. The talk was engaging, informative, and left a lasting impact on the students. We thank Red Frogs for sharing their knowledge and experiences with our students. 

Furthermore, the cohort had the opportunity to learn about staying safe during Leavers from the Armed for Life program. The program addressed the risks and dangers that can arise during leavers week, and it provided the students with practical strategies to stay safe. We are grateful to Armed for Life for their valuable contribution to our students’ safety and well-being. 

The Year 12 cohort has had an exciting and eventful term, and we look forward to seeing them continue to excel in their academic pursuits and extra-curricular activities. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students on their engagement at the swimming carnival, their behaviour at the ball, and their attentiveness during the talks from Red Frogs and Armed for Life. We are proud of their achievements and wish them the best for the remainder of the school year.
