On Thursday 4the December, we had our graduation ceremony for the Year 13 class of 2008. It was an emotional time here at Tamaki College, with friends and family all invited for the occasion. The students came into the auditorium to the music, "Happy Boys and Happy Girls" and then the National Anthem was sung.
We had a review of the year from our Head Boy - Sam Finau and our Head Girl - Mama Tuarae. Everyone was reminded what a full and eventful year it has been by looking at the photographs.
We then had Valedictory Speeches from our Deputy Head Boy and Girl, Mavis Stowers and William Tuikolovatu.
The graduation presentations were made and the band played "World in Union" while the Year 13 students all sang.
