Year 12's Finishing Feeling
Week 2 of Term 4 was filled with mixed emotions for our Year 12 students, whose King’s journey is abruptly coming to an end. Throughout the week, that surreal feeling of finishing high school became more of a reality as the cohort attended their final assembly and chapel service, dressed in pink for 'Pink Day,' enjoyed their last missions fundraising lunch at King's and planted their commemorative Year 12 tree.
Every year, our graduating cohort is named based on the characteristics of that year group and during the Year 12 assembly, Campus Principal, Mr Meyers, addressed the 'Year of Solidarity.' He reiterated that as a group, our Class of 2022 embody their title as they have always remained united through adversity. "COVID didn't divide you but brought you all closer." He said. "You have always used your God-given gifts not to elevate yourselves individually but to become stronger and more successful together." "As a cohort, you recognise the uniqueness in every person and accept and respect each other. You have always shown inclusiveness to new students and to your younger peers. We are proud of the way you have led the College with distinction and we encourage you to leave a lasting legacy by finishing well," Mr Meyers said. He read Romans 12:4-5 and Ecclesiastes 4:12 as the scriptures that the College felt described our graduating students.
During their final assembly, Mr Rees Davis [King’s Executive Principal] shared some parting words of wisdom with a valuable message about working as a team. He gave a personal example of tuna fishing and the three roles involved in successfully catching these challenging fish. 'In life, we find ourselves in many different teams and it is important that we each play our role in the team to achieve success while we learn and grow as individuals.' We wish our Class of 2022 every success and blessing as they prepare for and sit their final Year 12 exams and finish their King's journey, to move on into all God has called them to do.
