Today we had the Year 6 Leavers Ceremony. The kids were well practised and ready for the event, the music was all in place and the microphones had been checked several times. The work paid off because it all ran smoothly.
Most of my Year 6’s are really ready for Intermediate and I know they will all be fine.
After having most of these kids in my class for two years it’s going to be bittersweet to see them actually leave next week.
I promised myself that I wouldn’t cry this year… in fact I promised the kids I’d make cupcakes if I DID cry!
I was fine until Tangiroimata started to cry during her speech… all of a sudden my eyes were LEAKING!!!
Now I have to make cupcakes!
I managed to get most of the kids together after the ceremony and get a photo… of course they all wanted a ‘silly’ one as well!
We’ve only got 3 1/2 more days of school this year and we’re definitely in ‘wind down’ mode. There work sample books and reports went home today and the kids took all their personal stuff home as well.
Next week we’ll be cleaning up… de-cluttering… sorting and packing stuff away for the summer holidays.
I’m looking forward to it!!
Happy scrapping xxx
