Stu­dents grad­u­ate

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - The two stu­dents who made up the Grad­u­at­ing Class of 2017 at St Joseph’s Nagam­bie — An­thony McKeown and Daisy Lough­nane — were con­grat­u­lated af­ter the end-of-year school Mass by teacher Brid­get Hall and Fr Tony Hill.

Fin­ish­ing Year 6 is an im­por­tant rite of pas­sage, and even more so at a small coun­try school.

This year Nagam­bie’s St Joseph’s Catholic Pri­mary School con­grat­u­lated its two Year 6 stu­dents on com­plet­ing their pri­mary school years at the end-of -year Mass held on De­cem­ber 20 at St Malachy’s church.

Parish priest Fa­ther Tony Hill cel­e­brated the Mass for the whole school com­mu­nity and was as­sisted for Holy Com­mu­nion by school prin­ci­pal Leo Jones, Sue Deane and Fi­nola Price.

Fr Hill ad­vised the two St Joseph’s stu­dents to be trust­wor­thy in their fu­ture lives.

Mr Jones thanked Fr Hill, the staff and school com­mu­nity and vol­un­teers for their care, sup­port and ded­i­ca­tion in the past chal­leng­ing year.

Each stu­dent from Prep to Year 6 was pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate by their teacher as a me­mento of their 2017 school year.

The two Year 6 stu­dents were hon­oured by other stu­dents and fam­i­lies at the pre­sen­ta­tion and each re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate, a book of pho­tos, a video and a medal­lion to com­mem­o­rate their Year 6 year.

The Mar­garet Perry Award for a stu­dent who has achieved re­sults through hard work and per­se­ver­ance went to Daisy Lough­nane, and the Lions Club of Nagam­bie and District Inc. award for a stu­dent who has shown ex­cel­lence in all ar­eas of school life was pre­sented by club pres­i­dent Mar­garet Wil­son to both An­thony McKeown and Daisy Lough­nane.

The Kevin Verge award for a stu­dent who ex­celled in math­e­mat­ics went to An­thony McKeown on be­half of the Verge fam­ily.

The Weary Dun­lop Award, for a stu­dent who suc­ceeds de­spite ad­ver­sity was pre­sented by Mem­ber for Euroa Steph Ryan, who wrote a let­ter to the re­cip­i­ent stat­ing she would look for­ward to meet­ing them at Par­lia­ment House in 2018.

The award was pre­sented to Crys­tal Grib­bin by Mr Jones.

Fol­low­ing the end-of-year Mass, school com­mu­nity mem­bers gath­ered for a meal in the St Mary MacKil­lop hall.
