“We’d like to thank our parents for choosing to send us to this amazing school, our close friends for the banter, and the entire Woodleigh staff who make this school the unique and inspiring environment it is.”
Romy Lipszyc and Nixie-Claire Lepore – 2016 Woodleigh Prize Winners.
At our recent Valedictory Ceremony and Dinner, we celebrated the efforts and achievements of the Woodleigh School Class of 2016. Our graduating class are an exceptional group – as varied in their talents and interests as they will be in their paths beyond the school. A group of true individuals, who leave the safe confines of Woodleigh ready for the excitement and challenge that further study, travel and work present.
In her Valedictory speech, Woodleigh Prize Winner Nixie Lepore described Woodleigh as, “A school that does not just preach respect, but demonstrates and inspires its students to sincerely practise it. As a result, strong, passionate, independent, hardworking and kind leaders emerge.” These qualities – strength, passion, independence, kindness and hard work – these are the attributes that will deliver success, happiness and prosperity to students after they leave our care. And these are the leaders our world needs today and in the future.
We congratulate the Woodleigh School Class of 2016 and wish them every success in the futures they design for themselves.
Jonathan Walter – Woodleigh School Principal
