Let’s Celebrate 2015

Let’s Celebrate is a highlight at the end of each school year. It is an event about recognition; at its core it is designed to acknowledge the effort invested and learning accomplished by every student.

It is important to celebrate as a community and applaud the skills, talents and character of each student. Doing this in an environment such as Let’s Celebrate has significant value.

Your engagement and support of Let’s Celebrate contributes significantly to the atmosphere and success of the event. It is always a highlight of the final week, and we look forward to sharing with you in celebrating our students and their work this year.

Can I leave with my student after the Stage celebration?
Students are only required to attend the function for their particular Stage. Parents and students are able to leave at the end of the relevant Stage celebration.

Will there be food available?
Food will be available from BlueSky.

Will there be on-site parking?
As with all large-scale events, parking will be a highly coordinated exercise. We intend to use the oval to provide room on-site.  Additionally, parents are encouraged to minimise the number of cars they bring. Please car-pool with family or friends if possible, to make the afternoon and evening run more efficiently. When arriving at the event, please follow all instructions given by staff and park in designated spaces.

Is school uniform required?
Due to the long range forecast indicating high temperatures for the day, students will not be required to wear blazers (Secondary) or bomber jackets (Primary). Smart summer uniform is required, including shoes polished and tidy hair.

There will be uniform checks at the event to ensure students are presentable for this formal occasion.

Is this event compulsory?
Thursday 11 December is the last day of the school year for Primary and Secondary. The expectation and requirement is that all students from Kindergarten to Year 11 attend their respective events.
