Congratulations and farewell to the class of 2021 who received their graduation certificates at the inaugural Valedictory ceremony at Aquis Park.
The rain could not dampen anyone's spirits as the crowd gathered to view the arrivals of graduates in their finery. The concierge team did a splendid job of keeping graduates and partners dry as they exited their transport and stepped onto the red carpet. What an incredible sight it was to see everyone dressed to impress. Not only were they dressed beautifully they were all wearing a smile.
QAHS was so grateful to welcome families and friends to the event and invite them inside to have professional portraits captured. The joy and pride in the room was palpable as everyone prepared for the ceremony to begin.
The graduates stole the show as they entered in their academic gown and stole to take their seats. The excitement grew as speeches commenced with the Valedictorian Sebin Lee eloquently putting into words the sentiment of the cohort. Each graduate walked the stage and received their certificate from Principal Mrs Vanessa Rebgetz and proudly became the first state school Year 12 cohort to graduate in Queensland.
As the celebrations with families and friends came to an end the Year 12s were just getting started as they headed into their Formal for a three course meal, music and dancing! Graduates and staff thoroughly enjoyed the party atmosphere and tore up the dance floor until late into the night. What a wonderful way to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2021.
QAHS wishes all graduates well in the next steps of their journeys and can't wait to hear what each of the graduating class achieves.
