Teacher Gift Set
Hello Everyone! Last Friday, my eldest finished Grade 7 which means next year he is off to High School! Grade 7 has been the final year of Primary School as long as I can remember in Queensland (although my mother tells me in her day Grade 7 was High School - the Education Dept obviously change the rules every generation or so), however this cohort will be the last to finish in Primary School, with the Grade 6 class finishing this week also heading to High School next year. Such a strange feeling to have a child heading to High School.
Last Friday, the Grade 7's had their Graduation Ceremony which also included 10 Awards Presentation - these being Art, Mandarin, Music, Academic etc.... Finally the last award was announced, the June Hammer Memorial Award - which is given to one boy and one girl and is decided by no less than 20 staff and the winners kept a closely guarded secret by only 2-3 people. The winners names will be engraved on the Honour Board at the school. You can't imagine my surprise and gasp as my son's name was announced (I didn't even hear the girl's name I was so stunned - although I saw her go up on stage - Congratulations Ruth). Needless to say, I shed a couple of tears. We are so incredibly proud of you Zac - what an amazing young man you are growing up to be!
