The school’s week-long event is this year being held at P&J Live, and the arena was packed with excited families celebrating the success of their loved ones. Our photographer Chris Sumner attended day one on Monday to capture the moment when years of hard work came to a head. Jade Russell (left) and Neve McPherson toast each other’s graduation.
