What a party we had for the Year 6 Graduation on Friday! Thanks to our parents for organising the great food and drink, as well as lollies and plenty of cake. Special thanks to the Class Parents, Mr and Mrs de Fina and Mr and Mrs Tedesco. The celebration was a fitting end to our girls’ Primary schooling. Next year they will be joined by many new students in Secondary. It is such a joy to see more and more families embracing Tangara’s Vision.

The Head of Primary, Mrs Chigwidden, drew on Dr Seuss for her inspirational words of encouragement to the girls.

Some of the most important lesson in life you can learn from Dr Seuss. For example, “A person’s a person no matter how small”. No truer words have been said. Imagine our world today if everybody showed each other love and respect, no matter their size, the way they look or where they live.

“You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction you choose” This one statement is so important for you girls. During your Primary years, you have been given so many amazing skills, both academically from your teachers, and also life skills that you get to take forward into High School and your lives. It is now up to you to choose where you are going to go.’

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” We are all very different but need to work as a team to achieve unity, while respecting each other. Embrace your difference in the world and don’t follow the crowd. It is OK to be you. Stand up and shine in whatever you choose to do.

Happy Christmas!

Not many sleeps now until Christmas morning. I wish you every happiness for this beautiful season, and a well-deserved rest with your families. I look forward to seeing everyone renewed and re-energised in 2019.

The academic year is winding down, but there is still plenty of learning happening at Tangara!
