Students from all year levels of Damascus College went back in time as they celebrated the 24th annual Damascus Day. Starting as early as the 60’s and travelling right through to the 90’s students dressed in outfits and participated in many activities throughout school. All the activities were run and organised by students.
Korina Hegert, Damascus College Development Officer, shared the success by stating “It is a reverent start to the day with the mass, and then the celebration begins, having the students get dressed up and enjoying all the activities is great to see.”
Year 11 students Matt Payne also thought it was an enjoyable day for students saying “I think Damascus Day is really helpful, this time of year can be pretty full on with assignments and exams, so having a day where we can relax and dress up is great.”
