Each year, we’re so privileged to be able to share in the celebrations of our children and families as they graduate from our Early Intervention Program.
Our annual graduation ceremonies are much anticipated events, with staff, parents and supporters alike enjoying the opportunity to reflect on the inspiring achievements of our graduating children and wish them well as they embark on their journey to big school.
As part of our graduation celebrations we’re always proud to celebrate the remarkable achievements of one of our past graduates by honouring them as our ‘Graduate of the Year’.
Our Graduate of the Year is invited to attend our graduation ceremonies to share their story and experiences to reassure our latest graduates and their families that they fully prepared to take on all of the challenges that the future may bring and that hearing loss is no barrier to achieving your dreams. They will also represent The Shepherd Centre at various fundraising and awareness events throughout the year.
