The culmination of the Year 12's school life is the Graduation Ceremony. This grand event was held at the Starplex on Friday 21st November. Our guest speaker was the Hon Greg Crafter, who spoke about his journey in life, of the importance of planning and perseverance. Greg Crafter attended Gawler High in the late 1950ís and became a long serving politician in the seat of Norwood and also served as the Education Minister of South Australia.

This yearís Valedictory Speakers and Medal recipients were Naomi Turus and Daniel Roe.

The ceremony was followed in the evening by an enjoyable 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.

We congratulate all our award winners:
