Seniors move forward
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.
FAREWELL: The 2017 senior class 6CM is busy in its final term of primary school.
