With the excitement and anticipation of Christmas now behind us, it’s time to reflect on the final moments at Primary school of our Year 6 students.
After a wonderful day experiencing all the rides and activities at Adventure Park, they headed back to school for the final moments before the last bell sounded. While the boys played a vigorous ball game, the girls were a little more sentimental, gathering together in friendship groups to enjoy the final few minutes together. The countdown till 3.30 seemed to take forever, but when the bell sounded there were hugs (and a few tears) all round.
Then it was off home to prepare for Graduation that night. As we listened to the students speak with humour and fondness of their memories, and watched a video of their journey from Prep to Year 6 unfold, we realised how proud we were to be part of these young people’s lives.
So as they now move on with great anticipation to secondary school and beyond, we wish them every success and happiness and hope that Clairvaux has prepared them well for the future.
I’d like to also congratulate and thank the Year 6 students who were our first ever group of bloggers. They not only contributed to our Senior Learning Community blog, but also have developed excellent blogs of their own. Recently they began to share their knowledge by working with Year 5 ‘Blogging Buddies’ to help them set up their own blogs.
Congratulations to Gemma whose blog was ranked in the top 5 in the world wide Edublogs Competition and well done to all of our bloggers who have regularly created high quality posts. I hope we continue to read lots more interesting posts on your blogs. Check out the Year 6 blogs by clicking on their names.
