Special farewells begin

Special farewells are beginning across IGS as the School acknowledges the contributions and efforts of every member of the Class of 2020.

Year 12 English Extension 2 teachers Principal Shauna Colnan and Head of English Thom Marchbank celebrated with their students following the submission of their new and original major works.

These students who took on 4 units of English created substantial new and original major works in poetry, performance poetry, storytelling through podcast, film, critical responses, scripts and creative nonfiction.

“They were relieved and happy to submit,” Ms Colnan said. “They’ve worked hard in unusual conditions.

“We celebrated this special moment with speeches, cupcakes and books as gifts. Students wrote messages to each other and popped them into their bottles to keep and remember.

“We couldn’t be more proud of this remarkable year group, for all they have achieved and for the way they have carried themselves this year.”
