The time has finally come to say goodbye to the HUGE group of HSPers that have made up one of the craziest, funnest and cleverest classes I have had the pleasure of teaching! It was a long 20 weeks filled with challenges, excitement and learning, where we all made some very strong memories and lasting friendships! It was very difficult to say goodbye to these 12 young adults who have grown so much over the last 5 months. Let’s take a look at the final day …
GRADUATION: CERTIFICATES AND A HANDSHAKE!
As we came to the end of the day, it was finally time for the graduating students to officially graduate and receive their certificates … and a handshake! Let’s take a look at some of the action.
All graduating students received a little gift with their certificates. There was one surprise for one of our students …
Sohee (Korea) celebrates her birthday on Monday (22nd of January), her first day of high school in Australia! Sohee had also been a huge help to me personally on a number of class projects, so it was my turn to say happy birthday and thank you with an enlarged print of a class photo and a soft koala! Happy birthday Sohee, I hope you have a great first day, and an amazing experience at high school.
With formalities out of the way, we went out to the park and began preparing and cooking ingredients for hamburgers on the BBQ! It was a lovely afternoon and everyone worked together to put together some AMAZING hamburgers! Oh, so yummy!
While most were preparing and cooking, some students took a little time out to play frisbee.
… but the hamburgers were AMAZING!! A BIG thank you to Lexis Maroochydore for organising this party for us all!
We wish you all the very best as you all go into high school. I hope you continue to work hard and have a great time! Stay in touch!
Until next time …
Owen (Teacher of H.S.P.)
