Farewell to VCE class of 2016

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS / PEOPLE -

GOOD­BYE and good luck. “You are now stand­ing on the precipice of your fu­ture – where this takes you is in your hands.

“It is tra­di­tional at this time to wish you luck, but the re­al­ity is that luck has noth­ing to do with it.

“Grasp­ing your op­por­tu­ni­ties as they present them­selves is im­por­tant as you ne­go­ti­ate your way through life.

“Us­ing your ed­u­ca­tion, your ex­pe­ri­ence and the values you have learnt from your par­ents and school will as­sist you in guid­ing your de­ci­sions in the right di­rec­tion.”

So wrote the Mans­field Sec­ondary Col­lege’s se­nior school co-or­di­na­tor, Bruce McIn­nis, in his fi­nal farewell mes­sage to the VCE class of 2016.

The jour­ney through high school ed­u­ca­tion is a long one – six years from start to fin­ish.

In that time, stu­dents de­velop, change and grow – aided by the fam­ily, teach­ers and friends they sur­round them­selves with.

Here, we take a look at the fi­nal 12 months en­joyed by the class of 2016.

LEAD­ERS: School cap­tains for 2016 are Dempsey Par­sons and An­gus Ap­pleby, and vice cap­tains Michael Shaw and Zoe Reeve.
