Good luck to our sixes

Friday, 16 December 2016

Last Tuesday most of our grade six students headed off to secondary school for their participation in an Orientation Day. This was a big step in their educational lives; in many ways it announces the end of one chapter and the beginning of another for them. For many of our students, the primary school experience is something which stays with them throughout their lives. All of us remember where we went to primary school and generally have fond or at least lasting memories of that experience. So many of the kids we have taught over the past twenty or so years retain a very strong connection with Spring Gully PS; they are proud of our school and are always keen to know how we are faring. Spring Gully PS holds a special place for many in our community and it is something of which we are well aware and actively nurture. And so we wish our grade six kids the very best as they finish with us and begin a new chapter. We are very proud of them. They go in the knowledge that they will always be welcome back at Spring Gully PS.
