Credit to school

Whitsunday Times - - WHIT SUNDAY VIEWS -

TO­DAY (De­cem­ber 9) my hus­band and I and our three friends from Ot­tawa, Canada, took an outer reef cruise with Cruise Whit­sun­days. We ad­mit our ini­tial thoughts at the sight of a bus-load of school chil­dren join­ing our day cruise were not ex­actly thrilling. But (Proser­pine State School prin­ci­pal Robert Tem­ple­ton), the team of staff and par­ents and your won­der­ful Year 6 stu­dents are to be con­grat­u­lated.

Firstly we ad­mire the adults, staff and par­ents alike for ven­tur­ing bravely and con­fi­dently on a field trip such as this. Se­condly, we would like to con­grat­u­late all your Year 6 stu­dents who con­ducted them­selves in an ex­cel­lent man­ner. They were well be­haved, well man­nered, happy, fun, en­ter­tain­ing. They each made the most of the won­der­ful day and its op­por­tu­ni­ties. They were ac­tive, they laughed, they en­gaged ma­turely with the crew and other tourists. They are a credit to their school, their par­ents, their teach­ers, their peers, them­selves. We were also im­pressed with their fundrais­ing ef­forts to fund their day’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

We wish you all a merry Christ­mas, a safe and happy hol­i­day and we wish your Year 6-ers a fab­u­lous life and a won­der­ful ad­ven­ture at high school.
