On Tuesday the Ist of December it was year 6 sixes at my school last day of the junior school forever. This year we have done many exciting things such as Camp, Year 7 orientation day and many more things. One of the things I thoroughly enjoyed was the year 6 final assembly and dinner. Both of these things were so fun and sad because it was our last assembly ever in the junior school. Year 6 has definitely been an excellent year for all of us and we all enjoyed year 6. I thought I might share some memories about year 6 our final year of the junior school ever.
My favourite memories were:
The first day of year 6. Looking around our new classroom with no doors in between both year 6 classrooms. Finding out who was in our class and being with most of our friends.
Our new furniture. Our new funky tables, chairs, high table and splats. Everyone being really excited about the new furniture. Everyone wanting to sit on the splats and high tables.
The Little mermaid the musical. Everyone in the junior school in costumes and shining brightly on stage. This was definitely a favourite memory for everyone in the junior school. Also I enjoyed being Adella a mersister in the Little Mermaid. Waiting behind the curtains waiting to go on stage and perform. This was definitely one of my favourite memories.
Getting our year 6 badges at assembly. This was really exciting because we were acknowledged for our leadership roles that we have achieved. This was really exciting because all of the junior school knows that we are all leaders no matter what leadership role we had.
The year 6 final assembly in the junior school. All of the year 6 girls sang Hall of Fame and received our graduation certificates at the assembly. All our parents were there as well as the rest of the junior school. Some girls in year 6 were fortunate to read about Kindy, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year and Year 6. I was fortunate to read about Kindy with Lily another year 6 girl because we have been at the school since Kindergarten. We read about all our memories about this year. There were also photos of year 6 since Kindergarten when we were cute and tiny.
After we shared our memories about the Junior School we got our graduation certificates with a photo of all of year 6 all together. Kindy to year 5 sang May God Bless you. It was absolutely adorable listening to all of them singing this song to us. Some of the year 6 girls cried since we were leaving the junior school. Some girls cried because they had been at the school since Kindy so it was quite sad. I also cried when the rest of the junior school was singing May God Bless you and when some girls were reading their memories of the junior school. After they had sang May God Bless you year 6 and our parents got to leave the JYA before Kindy to year 5 did. I definitely enjoyed the year 6 final assembly.
Year 6 dinner. This was my favourite memory in the junior school ever. Dancing and singing to our favourite songs with all our friends and having a fun and enjoyable night. Having dinner and year nine girls serving us dinner. Having heaps of fun with our friends chatting and dancing.
Our passion projects. Blogging about our passion project and looking at everyone’s passion projects. This was definitely extremely fun looking at each other’s passion projects.
Our CYOA. Writing our own stories and getting people voting what should happen next in our CYOA. This was extremely fun and it was a great way to learn more writing skills and making our stories better.
Going to Canberra and us visiting New Parliament House, Old Parliament House, Questacon, the Australian War Memorial, Telstra Tower, the Australian Institution of Sport and many more interesting and amazing places.
Going to Cockatoo Island and Chowder Bay. It involved long bush walks, ferry rides, a transport challenge, kite making and flying, camping, rafting snorkelling and many more fun and enjoyable activities.
Peer Support. Leading a group of kindy to year 5 girls. Improving our leadership skills. Teaching the younger years about friendship and other things. Working with Imogen and leading our peer support group. Also getting to know some of the younger girls was good.
Party Day. This included two jumping castles, singing and dancing in the OLC, free time in the pool and having a sausage sizzle. I really enjoyed party day because this was our last one in the junior school. Also swimming, singing and dancing with friends was excellent.
Junior School Prize giving. I was fortunate to get two certificates for swimming. I was also fortunate to get one trophy for Junior School MC sports prize. This was a great achievement to get these three awards. Some girls in years 3 to 6 were able to get Citizenship, Commitment to Personal Best and Academic Excellence. In 6T Tess got Citizenship, Georgia, Imogen and Mia got Commitment to Personal Best and Ella, Gemma and Izzy got Academic Excellence. Everyone else who didn’t get one of these prizes got a certificate. In year 6 some girls were fortunate to get Special Academic Awards.
Izzy got the English Prize, Ella got the Mathematics Prize and the Science Prize, Georgia got the Inquiry Prize, Darcey got the Writers Prize, Claire got the Visual Arts Prize, Sophie W got the Music Prize, Amber got the French Prize, Olivia got Debating Prize, Gabrielle in year 5 got the Public Speaking Prize, Lea got the Christian Studies Prize, Ella got the Dux of the Junior School Prize, Gemma got the Junior School Captain’s Award, Olivia got the Vice Captain’s Award, Lea got the Jacqueline Farrar Memorial Prize, Isabella got the Mavis Honey Memorial Prize and Gemma got The Rotary Club School Award for the best all rounded. At Prize Giving the Junior School sang Shooting Star but with lyrics that we made up. This means that year 6 is officially over which is quite sad but really exciting because we will be in year 7 next year 2016.
I would like to thank our amazing teachers that we have had this year. Without our fantastic teachers we would not be able to do these fun and interesting activities. All the teachers have been excellent, kind and nice all the time.
Friendship. Friendship has definitely been my favourite thing this year. Some of my really good friends are leaving but I won’t name names. I can’t wait to see who I will be friends with next year.
Having a Blog. This was a great experience having my own blog. I especially enjoyed writing all of my posts. This was definitely one of my favourite things in year 6 2015.
Being a good example to the younger girls. This was a great experience having a leadership role and being a good example to the younger girls. I really enjoyed the younger girls looking up at all the year 6 girls. This was definitely a great experience.
Year 7 orientation day. This included meeting new girls, trying out different subjects, Profiling and having Lunch and Morning Tea with the new girls. This was definitely one of my favourite things this year. Meeting Katelyn D, Sophie T, Scarlett, Soph P and Caitlin B who are now my friends in year 7 2016.
Bye Junior School forever you have been fantastic but hello year 7 senior school. I will definitely miss the Junior School but I am really looking forward to next year in year 7 2016. Thank you so much Junior School you have been the best.
I would just like to say one more thing Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope everyone will have a wonderful holiday and Christmas with family and friends.
