Final day for the Class of 2017

Final day for the Class of 2017

The Class of 2017 leaves the final school assembly through a Year 7 guard of honour.

A guard of honour farewelled Year 12 students at their final assembly at the College today, as they prepare to embark on the next exciting stage of their lives.

The senior boys' final day at CBC commenced in Blessed Edmund Chapel, where they shared a thanksgiving Liturgy together, with Father John Sebastian encouraging boys to always keep their faith wherever they journey.

The gentlemen's final assembly celebrated their achievements, with Certificates of Merit presented to boys who achieved outstanding levels of positive indicators over the year, as well as awards from the Arts, Science and Service. Boys receiving Colours and Honours were also recognised in front of the College community.

College Captain, Nic Watson, and Vice-Captain, Henry Scurry, reflected on the Bob Rose'Meyer prayer, which is recited at the beginning of every lesson at the College.

Following CBC's tradition, the Class of 2017 was farewelled from the assembly in the same way the Year 7 cohort was welcomed at the beginning of the year, with the younger boys forming a guard of honour to pay tribute to the graduands' journey at the College.

The senior boys spent the rest of the morning sharing memories over pizza, as they savoured their final moments at their school.

Many boys will now turn their attention to upcoming school and WACE exams, while others will begin pursuing apprenticeships or employment, before returning to the College next term for their formal Graduation ceremony.

The Class of 2017 has provided outstanding leadership for students at the College, modelling what it means to be a CBC gentleman.
