Boarder Lines: 25 September 2020
The In Weekend was fun filled with lots of preparation for Year 12 and the culmination of in our very own cinema. It was very interesting introducing most of the Boarders (and Mrs Fry) to 'Bill and Ted'……the explanation of the previous movies provided some interesting conversations.
On Thursday we farewelled our Year 12 Boarders on their graduation from the Boarding House. This event is always a beautiful send off from the Boarders to those who have led and contributed to our community for so many years. With seven of our current Year 12 Boarders starting in Year 7, it has been a long journey, but what a journey. Tarli and Hannah reflected on their time as Boarders since Year 7 during the moving mass organised by Mrs Jo Kenderes, and officiated by Fr Paul Fyfe. An excerpt of their reflection is below:
It has always been a dream to host a dinner outside and this year we were successful! I am forever grateful for the hard work of the Boarders to set up such a beautiful space for Year 12 to graduate in style and to create lovely lasting memories. Our proud new Boarding Co-Captains, Grace Kelly and Clare Lienesch, stepped up to the challenge of MCing the night, the first of many events they’ll be hosting throughout their captaincy. We celebrated with a last meal chosen by Year 12, and each year it always ends up being schnitzel....our outgoing class of 2020 didn’t disappoint....but with the addition of an entrée and cold-rock for dessert - we were quite full!
Mia Timbs, Year 10 BRC member, has spent the term supervising and creating pinatas, which were thoroughly enjoyed by the Year 12's….particularly Jemma Hatton and Hannah Quinn, who proved they had the biggest 'guns' in their year! The Class of 2020 should be proud of the way they graduated with style and maturity. They will be greatly missed for their humour, their laughter and their leadership of the younger ones in Boarding. Gabbie and Hannah have led their cohort and the Boarding House as a whole, with maturity, with courage and with love. I am proud to have watched them grow as amazing leaders over this past year and am proud to now watch them continue on their journey as amazing women in their lives.
And as they leave at the end of a term as well as Boarders returning home to their loving families, as Bill and Ted would say,
Yours in Boarding,
Ms Maryanne O’Donoghue
Director of Boarding
