This week’s shining stars
R Badger – To all of Badger class, Miss Hart says… ‘Shining stars are what you are, illuminate the sky. And after all you’ve ever learned this year, it’s not surprising why. Reading, writing, science, math and social studies too, spelling, sharing and so much more will always follow you. Let laughter, love and friendship and happy memories made, find a way onto your face on any rainy day. And if you ever lose your way, just cast your eyes above because SHINING STARS are what you are, and forever you will stay.’
4 Rhino – Ms Keila says ‘My star or should I say stars of the week for 4 Rhino are…… everybody in the class. You have been an entertaining class to teach – full of amazing individuals. I will miss each and everyone one of you.’
