Today was the last day for all of Yr.6, a day of mixed emotions; excitement, nervousness, pride and sadness. First, the children celebrated their sporting success throughout the year. These included winning the Shepway Sports Trust elite leagues in Basketball and Tag-Rugby, the Bowl competition at the Nation Finals in Lacrosse and the Bellboat Challenge at Seapoint Canoe Centre. They were then presented with a dictionary by the Rotary Club.
These presentations were followed by some trophies given for special achievements in Yr.2 and certificates which were presented to all in the school who had 100% attendance this year. There were also awards for the intra school sports winners in each Key stage.
It was then time for the children to share their memories, this brought on a few tears both from children and parents as Yr.6 shared funny moments and things they would miss about the school. A few of the children had also made up some amazing songs about life at St Eanswythe’s which they shared with us.
Mrs Garrett’s speech reiterated how proud we are of all of Yr.6 and the people they are becoming. Their commitment, determination, kindness and hard work were mentioned along with their fantastic SATs results. The class were referred to by Mrs Garrett as ‘The Incredibles.’
Following the speech was the presentation of awards. Whilst every child in yr.6 have been amazing these awards highlighted children with particular talents and strengths in all areas including; academic awards, RE, effort, sport, music, art, kindness and friendship.
All the staff at St Eanswythe’s would like to say a big thank you to all the children in yr.6 for being amazing, kind, hardworking and caring individuals. We wish you well in your new schools and hope that you will stay in touch and come and visit us. We would also like to say a big thank you to all the parents, your support has been invaluable this year and is much appreciated by staff.
The assembly ended with some sad goodbyes to Miss Burnett and Mr Martin who are moving on next year. They will be sorely missed and we wish them all the best in their future careers.
