Year 12 Reflections

I​t was a beautiful October morning for students, parents and staff to come together in the bush chapel today to celebrate the Year 12 Reflections Breakfast of the class of 2022.

It’s a rite of passage for Woodleigh Year 12s each year, and the poignancy never wears off, as students reflect on their educational journey. Whether this journey started as a 3-year-old in Early Learning, or well into secondary school; whether they’re completing a school-based traineeship, or aiming to go on to tertiary study, this place and its culture leave an indelible mark on the young people under its care.

There’s a Chinese proverb that a child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark. At Woodleigh these marks look like kindness, generosity of spirit, calmness, and curiosity.

They don’t stop being Woodleigh people when they leave this place. They take the Woodleigh with them. And we couldn’t be any prouder of them as they prepare for the final weeks of their secondary schooling.
