I trust the last term has been as full and rewarding as the first three. I’m sure Libby’s mum jokes have been as funny as my dad jokes.
Year 6s I’m sorry I won’t get to see you around next year but I’m proud to have worked with all of you and I’m excited for you as you move on. High school is full of both challenges and opportunities and over recent years you have all shown me, in your unique ways, you are capable of taking on both.
Year 5s, phew glad they’re gone, now it’s over to you to be the best year ever. I look forward to seeing you around next year and watching you take on the challenges the final year of primary school offers. You’ve had some great friends and role models in this year’s year 6s whom I’m sure have demonstrated to you what is possible if you approach everything with optimism, enthusiasm and a dash of humour.
Enjoy the last couple of days as I enjoyed and appreciated my time with you and have a great summer.
Got to go, I’m catching a slow river boat from Hpa An to Mawlamyine. You know travelling is almost as rewarding as reading. Hey, maybe that could be a debate topic for next year.
