Year 12 Graduation Dinner and Special Awards


On Monday 18 October, King's 2021 graduates and their parents gathered for the Year 12 Graduation Dinner at the Gold Coast Convention Centre where they enjoyed a night of distinguished recognition, heartwarming memories and celebration of the cohort's collective success. During the event, King's Parents and Friends Committee presented our Year 12 Foundation Students (those who have been at King’s since Early Learning or Prep) with a special gift to commemorate their time at our College. Every Year 12 student also received their graduating folio, marking the end of their school journey at King’s. Each folio included a personal letter of reference from the school and two books, Craig Groeschel’s Dangerous Prayers, from our chaplaincy team, and Scott’s Pape’s Barefoot Investor from the College Board. Congratulations to our Class of 2021 - The Year of Courage - for reaching the end of your school journey.
