The Point Pearce Campus held its Christmas Assembly and Year 2 Graduation Ceremony in the JP Classroom at Point Pearce on Tuesday, December 12.
The classroom filled quickly in anticipation of the event which included the Kindy students and the R-1 class. The assembly started with the ‘Welcome to Land’, read by the Year 2’s. The students then sang two songs, “I Am Narungga’, and ‘Merry Christmas to You’ with beautiful sleigh-bell accompaniments.
After the presentation of student certificates to the Kindy, groundsman Graham Johnson also received a special certificate for his twenty years maintaining the school grounds. Teacher Alli Sturt was farewelled by the school and families and received a gift and certificate of appreciation for her teaching over the past years. Head of Point Pearce, Daniel Richardson outlined the year’s achievements and milestones and thanked families and staff for all their hard work through the year. He said the school was particularly proud in the huge increase in student numbers in all sections. Cheryl Agius announced the Premiers Reading Challenge awards and students received bronze and silver medallions. Kindy teacher Allie Luciani also shared a video celebrating the kindy / rural care year which had been put together by SSO Jodie Ames.
The it was time for the Year 2 students to graduate. Jamie, Rovina, Tramaine and Travis slipped behind the curtain and returned in their graduation robes. Each student then received their graduation certificate from Mr Richardson. After photographs of the graduating students were taken, families met in the Kindy play area for a BBQ, prepare by Graham Johnson. Congratulations to all the students who performed at the assembly and we look forward to seeing the Year 2’s as they continue their education at the Maitland Campus.
