Last Friday 30 November, the Year 12 Class of 2018 graduated from St Edmund’s College. The Graduation day is a momentous event with three unique celebrations, showcasing the students and the impact they have had on the College.
The day began with a mass at St Christopher’s Cathedral before the students and their parents returned to the College for the Academic Assembly where we acknowledged their achievements.
The day ended with the Graduation Dinner held at the Southern Cross club. During the dinner, the College presents a number of major awards that cover a variety of areas of school life. The worthy recipients of these awards were:
The Blue and White Award (chosen by the Graduating class and presented to the student that captures the essence of an “Eddies Boy”) – Zane Hogan
The Denyse Gibbs Award (presented to a member of the Graduating class to a student that has made consistent, sustained and conspicuous effort in their senior years) – Remy Tando
The Byrne Award (presented for the demonstration of personal integrity and initiative in the College and community) – Noah Wright
The Archbishop O’Brien Cup (presented for Christian Leadership) – Lachlan Hayes
The Oldfield Cup (presented for commitment to Community Service) – Aidan Rhodes
Sportsman of the Year – Zane Hogan
Principal’s Awards (presented to students deserving special recognition for their contribution to a part of College life – academia, leadership, academic effort, service, religious life, co-curricular or other areas that are deemed worthy of recognition) – Domenico Carnovale, Oliver Efkarpidis, Jack Sutton, Nick Taylor and Matt Winchester
