I DREAD THIS… the kids’ final day in school whenever we have to uproot in the middle of a school term. I’ve had to do this with Big M before (link) and now with Little Em.
Even though Little Em has been in kindy for just a little more than a year, the bond she’s created with the teachers and friends – not just those in her class, but with the children in other classes – has been heartwarming.
In that short year, she’s learnt to read and write; picked up new languages; gone for an educational trip (link); enjoyed all the science experiments and water plays in school; celebrated her friends’ birthdays as well as her own; sat through two assessments with commendable results; and performed in her first school concert (link). She’s had a great learning experience and a wonderful time in kindy!
So it’s naturally hard to say goodbye…
