Year 6s say goodbye
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.
