Year 12 Graduation & Awards


The Year 12 Graduation for Class of 2021 will be taking place on Monday 15 November at the Darwin Convention Centre.

We are adopting a cautious approach for both events and have made changes to ensure physical distancing and hygiene principles are adhered to. Guests who have not registered will not be allowed to attend. 

An online registration system will be made available closer to the date.

The dress code is smart casual and we ask students and families to arrive and be seated by 5.15pm for a 5.30pm start.

The Graduation Ceremony will take place in the Auditorium. Students can bring their parents/partners to this event, there is a maximum of 3 guests per student and COVID safe guidelines apply. This event will be live streamed. A link to the live stream will be published in Compass and on our Facebook page.

The Graduation will be followed by the Year 12 Formal Dinner.
