2020 Graduation Dinner


The Class of 2020 are a group of students who have welcomed every new change and challenge with courage and tenacity. The 2020 Graduation Dinner was their night to celebrate those cumulative successes in the company of their parents at the Gold Coast Convention Centre. The evening began with a welcome from the Head of Secondary, Mr Vallance, and a keynote address from Executive Principal, Mr Davis. The audience also heard from Year 12 Coordinator, Miss Baldwin, and King’s Foundation student, Kael Lennox, who reminisced on the Year 12's journey and imparted some wisdom to the graduating class and their families. 2020 College Captains, Reuben Drummond and Shimila Hartley, also spoke about their gratefulness for their King’s experiences and for the opportunity to enjoy their school years with such an ‘amazing’ peer group.

The Highest Awards were presented to students who have shown remarkable success and dedication to their studies, including the Year 12 Dux, Principal’s Award, Proxime Accessit and Music and Performing Arts awards. Service Awards were presented to students for extraordinary dedication to service while the Outstanding Consistent Commitment to Academic Studies were given for diligence to school work. Highest Subject Achievement awards were presented for all KTTC and Year 12 subjects. Congratulations to all of our 2020 award recipients (view via the link or button below).

Every Year 12 student crossed the stage to receive their graduation folder, which included a personal reference letter and The Barefoot Investor book, presented by the College Board. King’s Foundation Students (having attended the College since Prep) received a personal gift as their King’s Prep photo appeared on the big screen. Ps Ben Naitoko, Lead Pastor of King’s Church, prayed for the Year 12s and commissioned them for their lives beyond King’s. One of the highlights of the night came at the conclusion of the event - the Year 12 memories video - which was created by talented Year 12 videographer, Tyra Young. The audience enjoyed watching many incredible moments of friendship, fun, fellowship and faith, encouraged to see how the Year 12s made the most of their final year of High School.
