On Friday 11th December, the students and staff in Special Education had a surprise party and sausage sizzle for Kosta to say farewell and celebrate the end of his 13 years of schooling. Kosta and Tallinn are the first Year 12 students in Special Education to complete their HSC at Port Hacking High School.

Kosta, who elected to stay until the end of Term 4, will be greatly missed by his friends and staff at Port Hacking. We congratulate him on his graduation and wish him all the best for his future endeavours and new adventures.
