This week, the Paterson Program (Years 9 – 10) celebrated the wonderful achievements of the nine students we will be farewelling at the end of this year. With family members, staff and students from other programs in attendance, the ceremony was conducted under the shade of one of our biggest and most beautiful trees. Principal, Jennifer Shumack, read out the lengthy list of student achievements and Paterson staff presented students with awards of merit and well wishes from across the Rivendell community.
The students leave the Paterson Program to pursue a range of different educational endeavours including TAFE, progression to our Sulman Program and integration into other senior school settings. Whilst we are sad to see them go, we are so proud of all that they have achieved in Paterson and wish them the very best for their future!
