Fond­est farewell

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page - By Geor­gia Smith

Be­nalla P-12 Col­lege teacher Re­becca Pell has farewelled stu­dents as she moves onto her next chap­ter.

Ms Pell, who has been with the P-12 Col­lege since 2010, is set to move back to Bendigo where her fam­ily re­sides.

‘‘I never thought I would leave, I love the school and the com­mu­nity,’’ Ms Pell said.

‘‘How­ever, the pull to go home to be closer to my fam­ily has got a lot stronger.

‘‘My sis­ter has a lit­tle baby and I adore him and wanted to be closer to him.

‘‘And then an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity came up at a school in Bendigo.’’

The fi­nal weeks of school proved to be emo­tional for Ms Pell and her stu­dents who said their good­byes.

‘‘There has been lots of tears and there will be plenty more this week,’’ Ms Pell said.

She also had one last part­ing mes­sage.

‘‘My part­ing mes­sage for the stu­dents would be to be­lieve in them­selves, to con­tinue to work hard and do it for them­selves,’’ Ms Pell said.

‘‘Work hard and set your goals high just for your­self.

‘‘I wish them all the suc­cess in the fu­ture.’’
