A new tradition has been implemented at the school by the Old Saints. The first ceremony was held on Monday the 18th October 2004. The ceremony was accepted with excitement and appreciated by all.

Old Saint's              Ceremony

The Old Saints Ceremony proceedings take place after the transition of the new head boy and head girl. The transition takes place in the chapel, which is followed by the Old Saints ceremony held at the Garden of Eden. The grade 12's have their scroll locked in the Old Saints podium safe. This scroll will be removed from the safe by the present grade 12 head boy and head girl, and handed to the Old Saints. This will represent the transition from scholar hood to becoming the youngest members of the Old Saints Club. The grade 11's then write their own name on a blank scroll and place this scroll in the Old Saints podium safe. This will represent the grade 11's as the new leaders of the school, with the responsibility of protecting the scroll as well as the school. The ceremony ends with the grade 12's reading the Old Saints pledge aloud.
