A traditional rainbow of memories for Oxley College Year 12 class of 2020
Not all traditions have been hindered or stopped for the Year 12 graduating classes of 2020.
Students of Oxley College put on a colourful display to take part in the annual rainbow photo for the graduating class.
Community relations officer and registrar Emma Calver said the school was very conscious that “our senior students have had a particularly challenging time during Covid. We are determined to make the end of their schooling as special as possible,” she said.
“The traditional Year 12 Rainbow photo at our Senior School Athletics Carnival is one tradition we managed to repeat.”
The photo brings together the students from each house colour for a bright and lasting memory.
Ms Calver said the Year 12 students have their last day on September 24 and plans for celebrations were being made around the current Covid restrictions.
“I am sure it will be a wonderful celebration,” she said.
“They are in good spirits and are currently doing their trial examinations.”
Oxley College was well represented on Friday night at the Annual Berrima District Sports Awards. The Junior Monthly Award winners Lachlan Mineeff, Joel Manton, Chilli Sparke, Anneliese Wansey, Rory Shedden and Senior Monthly Award winner Meaghan Stanton were all presented with their trophies.
The big news of the night was the announcement of Junior Sportsperson of the year, awarded to Chilli Sparke. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement.
A huge thank you to Jason Simpson who organised our Oxley students at short notice. And also to Mark Case and the group of Oxley students who gave up their time during the holidays to place flags at each of the 170 or so graves and memorial plaques of Australian service personnel.
On Friday 13 June six Oxley Year 10 students performed their play The Doctor Shepherd Show at the State Finals of the short play competition Fast and Fresh at the Riverside Theatre, Parramatta. They were triumphant and won Best Production, the People’s Choice Award and Charlotte Thirlwall won Best Actress. For the past nine years, Oxley College has participated in Fast and Fresh and the results have been consistently strong. However this is the first time one play has received three awards. Congratulations to the following students and their teachers for this outstanding result: Cameron Connell, William Duncan, Patrick Newton, Frankie Quill, Harry Sutherland and Charlotte Thirlwall and teachers Chris Canute and Phil Cunich.
