Year 12 students and their families enjoyed a fun night out at Dockside Darling Harbour for their Graduation Dinner on Wednesday evening, with the theme The Adventure Begins.
The soirée began with Head Girl Mi-kaisha Masella speaking of the role of the boomerang in Aboriginal culture. “You may journey far from IGS but you’ll always have a path that will lead you right back!” she said.
Cian Galea and Hanako Howard-Shibuya, Head Boy and Girl of 2013, when members of the Class of 2018 were in Year 7, also spoke.
“Congratulations and good luck to all of your adventures to come!” said Hanako.
“Try something and give it your all, Class of 2018, and you can’t go too far wrong,” Cian added.
“Your adventure is about to begin,” said Head of Year 12 Ned Manning. “Whatever you dream of being, go for it. Believe it or not, you only live once. Whatever you do, don’t die wondering.”
“Aim to be the very best for yourself, so that you can give back more and make this world a better place,” said Year 12 parent and ABC Q&A Series Producer Amanda Collinge.
The students enjoyed a meal with their families, as well as fun at the photo booth and portraits painted by IGS Year 1 students.
With Deputy Head of High School “Papa” Paul Galea as MC, students and parents danced the night away at an unforgettable and glittering event to mark the start of a great adventure.
