Valedictory Service

This service takes place every 1st Sunday in July every year commencing at 5pm on the school grounds. The dress for the Valedictory Service is an academic gown and a mortar board. The girls will wear their school uniform under the gown along with black shoes. The Boys will wear long sleeve white shirt with khaki pants under the gown along with black or brown shoes.
