Exceptional Awards Day

The 67th Annual Awards Day was again a wonderful celebration of the 2018 year at Yarram Secondary College. The choir opened proceedings with the Australian National Anthem. Speeches from Principal Brett Pedlow, School council president Alison Payne and School Captains Hayley Hands and Layton Sketcher covered the many wonderful things that have happened in 2018 and the exciting new things happening in 2019. The program not only featured our top academic but some of our top musicians with special performances from leaving students Tayla Dwyer and Mackenzie Walker, accompanied by the band lead by Saul Stainer and John Rees. We saw the new school captains Marley Jonston and Brad Farley welcomed, and celebrated the high achievements of our VCE students, with Hayley Hands being announced the Dux with an A.T.A.R of  96.90. The day concluded with a snapshot of the year including, camps, excursions, sports days and subjects.The staff wish all our students and their families a wonderful, safe and happy Christmas and New Year. Next year will see a staggered start with VCE Unit 3/4 and Year 7 students commencing on January 30th, with all others year levels 8, 9 and 10 commencing on January 31st.
