On Sunday 28 October, we celebrated the 2018 SFC Valedictory Eucharist in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit. We thank the valedictorians for their contibutions to the College and wish them well as they begin the next stage in their journeys. Members of Mothers’ Union Brisbane presented a diocesan stole to those who are to be ordained in December. Following the service, the gathered crowd continued the celebrations on the lawns of Old Bishopsbourne.
This occasion also serves as an opportunity to award the 2018 prizes to formation students and to announce the Senior Student for 2019. Congratulations to these recipients:
The Canon Ivor Church Encouragement Bursary (given to a first or second year student): Lauren Martin.
The Jessie Worthy Prize (for a student who has contributed substantially to the SFC community): Jonathan Kemp.
The David Hughes Memorial Bursary (for a student from, or interested in serving in, a rural area): Michael Calder.
The John Howard Steer Bursary (for service to the College): Susan Barker.
The Senior Student for 2019 will be Ann Edwards.
