A day that Year 6s will never forget was their last day at school. A mixture of emotions – sadness, pride, excitement and gratitude – was what dominated the day.
It began with signing of T shirts that they had tie dyed as part of a design technology project.
Parents gathered in church in the afternoon for our special service that began with the Chair of Governors, Jo Moss, speaking about what the children have experienced over the years and reminding them that they have lived life to the full.
Year 6 each stood up and shared their Powerstock experiences and journeys.
Then prayers were said before the school prayer (an integral part of our assemblies) was said using our actions.
Presentations of awards were made. Finley was given the ‘Star Award’ and Grace the ‘Phoenix Cup’. Congratulations you two!
Then gifts were given: cards and comments written by pupils, leavers’ T shirts and cards given by the PSA, Bibles from the governors and, of course, a conker tree sapling from our wonderful school horse chestnut. ‘May you blossom and grow, just like our conker tree’.
And then it was time to leave. The west door of the church was opened and as the school sang a specially written song for them, Year 6 walked down the aisle and out of the church – a symbolic way to end their time at school and begin a new journey in a new secondary school.
Goodbye Year 6, we all wish you the very best for the next stage of your lives. Continue to be the amazing people that you are. Remember our school values and live life in all its fullness.
