YEAR 6 GRADUATION PHOTOS
As part of the Year 6 Graduation, a slideshow is developed which includes photos of the current year six students when they first started school. If your child had their school photos taken in Prep at Melrose, we already have these photos on file. If your child came to Melrose after this time, we will not have their photo on file. So no one misses out, if your child did not complete their first year of schooling at Melrose, we ask that you send their prep school photo to your child’s classroom teacher. Alternatively, photos can be emailed to: graduation@melroseps.vic.edu.au
With thanks, The Senior Team
