Graduation Day 2007

                           November 23rd 2007


Graduation Ceremony Graduation Dinner

 

The 23rd November 2007 was a very special day in the history of Gawler High School, as the Centenary Class of 2007 celebrated the end of their school days with a formal ceremony at the STARplex. This year's guest speaker, chosen by the Year 12 students, was former member for Wakefield Mr. David Fawcett. He spoke of the things in our lives which are important, such as friendships, relationships, health and decisions about is important to hold on to in life. Local community members recognised students' special achievements by providing a range of awards. The Valedictory Speakers and medal recipients were Candice McLean and Jarred Caddies, who presented retiring principal Sandra Lowery with a gift from the graduates.

The ceremony was followed by a lovely formal dinner at Ayers House, North Adelaide. We wish our Graduates every success in their future and hope they have fond memories of Gawler High.
