Leavers’ Scarf Presentation

November 22, 2017 at 4:30 PM

The final Girls’ School Chapel of 2017 was made even more poignant with the presentation of leavers’ scarves to the Year 8 girls. These scarves are unique to Saint Kentigern Girls’ School as they are handmade of silk with each one being individual in design. They have four symbols that signify specific events in the life of Saint Kentigern: the tree, the fish, the bell and bird.

As each name was called, the Year 8 graduates were greeted by the Year 1 students who presented the scarf. This customary tradition is a symbol of thanks from the youngest members of the School to their role models and elder sisters. Proud family members joined the congregation; a time of reflection as their girls prepare to move on from the School to college.

As the scarves were handed to the girls, retiring Deputy Principal, Mrs Judith Dobson, helped drape the scarves one last time.

Principal, Mrs Juliet Small said, ‘I hope that you will wear the scarf with pride, that you will treasure it in the years ahead and as you move on in life, you will remember this school and that you will always be a daughter of Kentigern.’
