Year 6s say good­bye

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

ONE of St Thomas’s largest co­hort of grad­u­at­ing year 6 stu­dents said a teary farewell on Tues­day night and are ready to head to high school.

With 74 stu­dents grad­u­at­ing each stu­dent was pre­sented with their Year 6 cer­tifi­cate.

Prin­ci­pal Rita Pe­tersen con­grat­u­lated all stu­dents on their hard work through­out their school life so far and wished them ev­ery suc­cess in their fu­ture.

“My fi­nal mes­sage to you is to fol­low your dreams, to care about all of those around you, and to live your life full of pas­sion,” she said

“And re­mem­ber that St Thomas’s and your ex­pe­ri­ences here have shaped who you are, so be grate­ful for the past, the peo­ple who care and love you and be in­spired and ex­cited about your fu­ture.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions, Year 6, on reach­ing this mile­stone. Like all those who have gone be­fore you, our prayer is that you go forth from St Thomas’ with hav­ing deep­ened your love of God and of oth­ers.”

She said as stu­dents head on to Year 7 “may they al­ways walk in the light that is uniquely cen­tred in Christ” and she looks for­ward to hear­ing about their suc­cesses in the years to come. Stu­dents will fin­ish school this week and head to high school in 2018.

St Thomas of Vil­lanova Par­ish School Year 6 stu­dents cel­e­brated the end of their pri­mary years on Tues­day night.

Darcy Adams re­ceived his Year 6 cer­tifi­cate from Fa­ther John Sul­li­van.
