On Thursday evening last week Class 6-7 hosted our Graduation Farewell Party. The whole event was in the hands of very competent young people, and it was a fantastic evening full of fun music, old photos, yummy food and lots of gratitude!
The speeches given were absolutely awesome: there were memories, stories, comedy routines, heartfelt considerations and beautiful moments I will hold in my heart forever.
Here are three of the many things I have learnt from teaching exceptional and unique students:
- A pot of tea shared can do wonders!
- Listen with love, speak with integrity
- Everyone is in the band!
Thank you to all the parents of Class 6-7 for your support and a BIG thank you for the perfect gifts.
When a dark cloud full of thunder and lightening darkens my day, I breathe in deeply and quietly say,
“the sun is always shining, even when there’s a storm, after wind and drenching rain there is a rainbow warm.
After torrent and tempest there is a silver lining. A radiant rainbow appears, the sun is always shining”.
