Our farwell from St James
The students reflected on their primary school life during the night with wonderful readings, music and slideshow. Congratulations to them all for their hard work and dedicated learning. We will miss them greatly next year.
On Wednesday the 3rd of December it was a very special day for the grade 6's as they celebrated their Graduation Mass and passed on the light of leadership to the grade 5's.
There were many highlights to the night. Firstly we started with the candle reflection ceremony in which Emma and Emily led and the rest of the grade 6's took a candle up for either Emma or Emily to light. Each of the candles represented a year of the grade 6's as they went through primary life. Another highlight to the night was the passing on ceremony in which the grade 6's past a candle to the grade 5's. This symbolised the light of leadership that they were passing on.
There was also awards that were given to some of the students. The St Francis award was awarded to Jayden, the academic award, sponsored by the Pakenham Rotary club, was awarded to Jessica, the citizenship award sponsored by the Bunyip-Garfeild Rotary club was awarded to Georgia and Lachlan and the Milk bar award was awarded to Hannah and Ryan.
