Next stage of life lies ahead

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

YEAR 10 stu­dents at Biggen­den State School­were told to learn from their fail­ures but at the same time that they needed to be re­silient enough to learn and step for­ward.

At Fri­day’s pre­sen­ta­tion of stu­dent port­fo­lios, school prin­ci­pal He­len Foul­ger told the stu­dents they had the abil­ity to suc­ceed.

“We heard at last night’s din­ner some of you had set high goals,” she said.

North Bur­nett coun­cil­lor Lofty Wendt told the stu­dents not to lose sight of their ul­ti­mate goal.

Cer­tifi­cates were pre­sented to school lead­ers and mem­bers of the stu­dent coun­cil.

Out­go­ing school lead­ers An­thony Wright­son and Tea­gan McDon­ald told the 2013 lead­ers to stay con­fi­dent and com­mit­ted.

They pre­sented the school flag to Vanessa McIn­tyre and Casey Tay­lor while Ms Foul­ger pre­sented the flag to ju­nior leader David Geissler.

A pre­sen­ta­tion was made to the Biggen­den RSL sub­branch for the school’s Re­mem­brance Day sale of mer­chan­dise while flow­ers and a framed cer­tifi­cate were pre­sented to re­tir­ing lol­lipop lady Rose­mary Romeril.

Teacher Kathryn Bax­ter was pre­sented with flow­ers and wished well in her new po­si­tion on the Sun­shine Coast.

A fur­ther pre­sen­ta­tion was made to Laine Collins for her work with the weekly milk­shake club.

The ma­jor­ity of de­part­ing stu­dents are head­ing next year to ei­ther Isis District High or Bur­nett Col­lege. James McAskill has cho­sen to fur­ther his stud­ies at St Tho- mas More Catholic Col­lege in Bris­bane and Dean Goodall will also head to Bris­bane, to study at an agri­cul­tural col­lege.
