I cannot believe that it is the last week of school. I cannot believe that I have to say goodbye to all of my students. We’ve been together for two years; we’ve laughed, learned, joked, played, camped, cried, lifted and supported each other along the way, and I am going to be very sad on our last day.
I am also happy to know that they are all ready for the next step in their education. They are all deep thinkers, motivated students, caring empathic individuals who are enthusiastic about their next educational step. I’m happy that they’re all ready for their secondary school lives!
It’s been a wonderful two years of teaching for me. A great school and a beautiful bunch of students.
Happy holidays all :) Cathie x
