Congratulations to the class of 2022

There were many cheers, much applause and a few tears as our graduating Year 12 students, families, teachers and GISS staff came together for a special graduation ceremony at Zest at the end of November 

Year 12 class teachers, Mr Greenslade and Mr Day, spoke about their students’ hard work and dedication, their persistence and teamwork, and the exciting future and responsibilities that lay ahead of them. 

The highlight of the evening was when Year 12 presented the traditional IB surfboard, created by the students, to our IB coordinator, Annie Thomson, and the IB core team. Annie Thomson and our Principal, Lorenz Metzger, then recalled the students' IB journey; the ups and downs, trials and triumphs of our class of 2022.

Our guests of honour, Consul General Axel Zeidler, Deputy Consul-General, Karl-Heinz Schmitz, Board members Felix Marian and Julia Erben wished all our 22 graduates the very best for their future ahead. The night ended with everyone having fun on the dance floor. 

Special thanks to Kate Rouvray for organising this wonderful event.
