Here are some of the students from Stanford Lake College who received awards during their Valediction Service.

The Class of 2021 students from Stanford Lake College (SLC) enjoyed their official last day of school on Friday the 15th of October.

The day was a rollercoaster of emotions as the matriculants enjoyed the last day’s traditions, including receiving gifts and words of encouragement from the gr.1 learners from Unicorn Preparatory School.

They were also presented with roses from the gr.11 class. The matric class gathered at the bottom Astro pitch for the Valediction and Prize Giving Ceremony, where they heard stories of old from the guest speaker and previous headmaster, Brian Dawson.

The matriculants also heard some heart-warming and inspirational speeches from the principal, Alan Redfern. Many of the students received trophies for their contributions to the school and the formalities were followed by the ceremonious throwing of coloured paint and, of course, jumping in the lake.
