Se­niors move for­ward

Central Queensland News - - LIFE | PRIMARY SCHOOL NEWS -

WOW, it is amaz­ing how fast time flies when you aren’t count­ing it.

Our se­nior stu­dents only have a few weeks left un­til they leave the com­fort of pri­mary school and head off into the big­ger ex­cit­ing world of high school.

Even though their time is com­ing to an end here, the stu­dents are still ex­tremely busy this term.

They are fin­ish­ing off their as­sess­ments and learn­ing how to cope in the high school world.

There is grad­u­a­tion re­hearsals full of danc­ing, sports awards, aca­demic awards and a week-long camp to Mag­netic Is­land.

I did the rounds of the se­nior stu­dents and I asked them a va­ri­ety of ques­tions about high school, leav­ing and camp.

The stu­dents’ an­swers about leav­ing pri­mary school were sim­i­lar in that they ad­mit­ted that they were go­ing to miss the teach­ers a lot and their fel­low stu­dents from pri­mary school.

Amaz­ing bonds may be tested due to town moves and new ones made.

Emma Ri­ley, Nar­dus Jor­daan and Har­ri­son Rogers were very ex­cited about new friends, all say­ing they “can’t wait to make new friends and have so many dif­fer­ent classes”.

Some were very ner­vous about go­ing to the one high school where stu­dents from the other state school will be.

Most of the boys were keen to ex­pe­ri­ence new sub­jects such as wood­work and met­al­work.

Wor­ried, ex­cited and anx­ious was the vibe that was re­ceived.

Stu­dents also loved be­ing the school lead­ers and hav­ing the younger stu­dents look up to them and felt anx­ious about the fact they will again be the ju­nior stu­dents.

The Year 6 stu­dents have been amaz­ing role mod­els for our younger stu­dents.

The camp is also get­ting our stu­dents ex­cited. We have an end-of-year camp and it feels like the last bond­ing ses­sion and farewell to pri­mary school.

They are head­ing to Mag­netic Is­land for a week and the ac­tiv­i­ties are non-stop. This camp is fol­lowed by their grad­u­a­tion and farewells.

We at Mo­ran­bah State School are so proud of how th­ese young boys and girls are be­com­ing adults. They are smart, car­ing and will achieve what they wish.

Good luck and farewell.
