Well here it is …..THE END! We made it! It is always bitter sweet when a school year ends but the children are ready to go onto the next adventures of their lives. I hope you enjoy one last slideshow of all the ‘Little Darlings’!
This is the last BLOG message for the school year. With that in mind here is a final huge THANK YOU for your continued support throughout the year. I know I / we kept you busy, preparing for the Today Show, helping with the home reading, homework, supporting the Units of Inquiry morning and afternoon teas, accompanying us on field trips, attending the Assembles, the Winter Show, the Spring Show, UN Day, Earth Day, class parties and performances. The list goes on and on! Your support and encouragement helped the children and me enormously. I would like to especially acknowledge the HOMEROOM MUMS for their extra efforts.
A special thanks to George, Treena, Anita and Ojas for helping out with home reading! A HUGE heart felt thank you must go to Ria who has been a tremendous help to both myself and the children throughout the school year.
It is always sad to say goodbye to children and families who are moving to a new school, back to their home country or onto a new country. We have already said farewell to Isabel, Amelie and Aarav and today we have to say goodbye to Toren, Heloisa, Vanessa, Frida and William. We will miss you!! I am sure all who are staying at IST would join me in wishing their families safe travels and best wishes where ever life’s journey may take them.
If you are traveling over the summer vacation take care and enjoy the company of your family and friends. I am looking forward to catching up with some old friends in Romania, then onto Crete and finally to the UK to meet my Mum and niece.
If you are coming back to IST, please don’t be strangers next school year and always feel welcome to come in and say hello.
I really wanted to make sure I took the time to share my heartfelt thanks to you all for the lovely flowers and the beautiful ceramic Chinese Zodiac set (I LOVE THEM) and especially for all kind words. The personal touches of saying thank you are humbling and I very much appreciate your time in making them.
I want to say to you all, what a privilege it has been to teach your child. The class may have grown but that to me only added to the learning and the laughing and the sharing and caring and ……FUN!!! (Oh, and the odd time of me having to turn into a dragon :)) I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each and everyone of your amazing, individual and delightful children. I love them to bits! As you could tell, I am always a little sad to say goodbye to each class but I hope they look back on their year in Kindergarten with many fond memories. I know I will!
Thanks again EVERYONE!
