This year's final and year 6 leavers assembly.
Today we celebrated the end of our year 6's journey here at Aberdeen School, with our awards and final assembly. There was laughter and tears during our celebration as we farewelled both students and staff.
Students received recognition and awards for many different characteristics and attributes that are valued in our students.
Our Principal Lesley Lomas first addressed the audience, followed by Nicole Blackwood from the Board of Trustees.
Members of our PTA, Jeanette Keown and Stacey Titchiner addressed us next, speaking of all the wonderful achievements that our PTA has had over the last year. She also farewelled Stacey, who is stepping down as our PTA president.
We also farewelled Tingting our Mandarin Learning Assistant who has been with us all year, gifting her something special to remember her time here at Aberdeen and in New Zealand fondly.
Also leaving our Aberdeen staff this year were Sam Smith, who is leaving to embark on her OE and James Roache who has accepted a position at another school. Good luck to you both.
