Valete Night

The word ‘valete’ means ‘farewell: may things go well for you’. This is our hope and prayer as families, College staff, and special guests gather to farewell our graduating Year 12 class.

The evening holds special memories for all attending and participating. For some, it is the sense of community among the students. For others, it is the sense of hope and promise, together with a touch of nostalgia the evening inspires.

It is during the Valete celebrations that the school community acknowledges the generous contributions made by the graduating class, as well as their efforts and achievements made in their studies.

Our hope for all students as they depart Loyola is that they may they leave us with a deeper sense of what it means to be ‘a person for others’.
