Year 12 stu­dents bid farewell

Narrogin Observer - - Front Page - Michael Traill

The Western Aus­tralian Col­lege of Agri­cul­ture has farewelled their 2018 Year 12 co­hort dur­ing the col­lege’s grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony on No­vem­ber 9.

Macey Turner was named as the Col­lege’s dux, while also be­ing named High­est Achiever in Class.

Joe Cold­well’s name was called out nu­mer­ous times dur­ing the grad­u­a­tion’s ma­jor awards as he col­lected the Ex­cel­lence in Vet and High­est Achiever in Trades awards, while also be­ing recog­nised by prin­ci­pal Stephen Watt for 100 per cent at­ten­dance, along with Hay­den Burt.

Bren­dan La­mont was awarded with High­est Achiever on Farm.

Mr Watt said the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony was a great op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge the ef­forts of both the Year 12 grad­u­at­ing class and high per­form­ing Year 10s and 11s who were also pre­sented with awards on the day.

“The main aim of the day is to cel­e­brate the 12

or 13 years of school and wish the Year 12s farewell as they go into the big world and next ven­ture,” he said.

“What we’re try­ing to in­stil in our stu­dents is a broad range of skills that are re­lated to the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try and re­lated trades. But prob­a­bly the more im­por­tant (val­ues) of at­ti­tude and the ability to jump in and work in a team, the ability to be proac­tive in see­ing jobs that need do­ing.”
