Damascus students from all year levels took their outfits back through time to celebrate the school’s 24th annual Damascus Day.
Students dressed up in outfits from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, while getting involved in lots of activities throughout the school.
The school’s Development Officer Korina Hegert felt as though the day had been a rousing success.
“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,” said Mrs Hegert.
Students also feel as though the day provides an opportunity to wind down during a stressful school period.
“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,” said year 11 student Matt Payne.
The event acts as a transitional day, as the school announced its 2019 school captains.
All activities throughout the day are organised and run by the students.
