After attending the final assembly for the Year 12 students, the Year 3 class returned to the classroom and discussed what it must be like to be finished with formal schooling. Year 3 students reflected on the emotions expressed at the final assembly and were inspired to write a few words to farewell the Year 12s.
This year’s graduating class has a special meaning for me. Some of the girls were in my first Year 6 class in 2011 here at Tintern. It is evident they are still their gorgeous selves with their divine personalities and character traits – just as I remember them. But they are wiser, mature and so much more sophisticated. I look forward to hearing of their journey beyond as they go forth towards “the horizon quivering with potential”. I also look forward to knowing them now as young adults.
Below are the farewell messages from Year 3 students:
Pick a path and follow it. If there is a wall, try to get around it. Be a good leader for all. Best wishes, Matilda Robson
