‘It was a real privilege to be able to see so many of our year 6 students this morning, as we celebrated their time with us and said goodbye. As staff, we are always so proud when we get to the end of year 6; always with a tear or two to shed! But this year was even more precious, as we were able to see so many that we have not seen for months.
Mr Kay and Miss Hall did a wonderful job, organising the event and lots of other staff assisted too.
We were delighted to be able to award Liam and Chloe as our Barbara Armstrong Award winners. They both were presented with a £50 note and will receive a trophy and the plaque in the entrance will be engraved with their names. This is a real honour and you can see on the website the criteria for this award.
Mr Moore put together another of his outstanding films, with the music and photos synced so beautifully. How does he do it!? Well, that is why we call him Mr Magic after all!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents of our Y6 students, as you have been a tremendous support over the years. We have journeyed together and it has been quite a journey!
