Today was a very special day for Bonnie at Bethlehem College Kindergarten.   Today was her graduation!

Bonnie and her whanau have been part of our centre community since she was 3 years old.  Now it is time for her to go to primary school.

At Bethlehem College Kindergarten we celebrate this milestone with a special graduation ceremony.

The child’s journey at kindy, their interests and virtues are shared at this time.  The other children are able to contribute to the celebration and a bible is presented to the child.

Bonnie it’s our pleasure to send you off to your new adventure at school with our love, support and blessing ♡


Bonnie, we have loved getting to know you.


heart-smlBonnie, some things that we love about you are: The way that you love to make things you are so creative, we love the way that you are such a kind friend and also that you love to dress up and be a princess. We have also noticed your growing confidence and that you now love to come to kindy and get busy doing all the things.


heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy making pretty things and you love to pick the flowers at kindy. We have seen you up on the bike track zooming around, you love to paint beautiful pictures and hide away in blanket huts and chase the pretty butterflies and dance and sing to the music.

heart-smlBonnie, you are very interested in art and all things creative. You like to work on a joint project and be involved in what’s happening. You have really loved being in the ambulance and being a patient and a health worker like a nurse or doctor. You are very caring.

heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are caring for others, helpfulness, creativity, friendliness, and kindness


Bonnie, our prayer for you is that as you transition to primary school you continue to grow and development into the amazing young person God has made you to be. That your transition goes smoothly and you make some great new friends and God calms your nerves so you can really enjoy your first days at school.



At Bethlehem College Kindergarten you’ll find happy children in a nurturing environment, enjoying genuine relationships with caring teachers who facilitate creative play and quality learning experiences.
