Fahan School celebrated the end of the School year with 83rd Annual Speech Night on Monday 10 December followed, the next morning, by the Final Assembly and “Tossing Out” Ceremony.
Speech Night was attended by Middle and Senior School girls and their families, the Fahan School Chairman and Board, a number of staff and noteworthy dignitaries. Academic and special prizes were awarded during the evening and there were performances by the Senior Orchestra and Senior Vocal Group, as well as a wonderful excerpt of songs from Les Misérables.
The Gerdy Jevtic Medal, traditionally presented at Speech Night to an Alumni who has brought pride and honour to Fahan, was presented to Coroner Olivia McTaggart. Olivia was Deputy Head Prefect at Fahan in 1983 and studied Law and Arts at the University of Tasmania. Olivia was appointed as a Magistrate in 2004 and has been the Chief Coroner for the last four years, reforming the Tasmanian Coronial Court.
Congratulations go to all the prize winners at this year’s Speech Night, Final Assembly and to the Year 12 Leavers who have represented the School so admirably throughout their time at Fahan.
