Today was a very special day for Cooper at Bethlehem College Kindergarten.  Today was his graduation! Cooper and his family have been a wonderful part of our centre community.   Now it is time for him 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.

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



Cooper, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlCooper, some things that we love about you are your enthusiasm to share fishing stories! We love that you love rules, order and know the difference between right and wrong. You love to tell your friends about how long it is before you go to school…and guess what? This is it! You are off!

heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy being the kindy police officer, capturing the “robbers” and playing imaginary games with your friends. You also love the woodwork table area, where you spend many hours designing fishing rods, boats, robots and all kinds of interesting things. You are very capable to use all the tools, from the electric drill to the hot glue gun!  

heart-smlCooper, you are very interested in how to make things, and once it is made, how to change them!   You like to ask questions or share ideas about plans you have in your head.


heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are Confidence, creativity, honesty, respect, tolerance, perseverance, moderation, friendliness and lovely sense of humor.



Cooper, our prayer for you is that you will be seeking God’s ways and that you will show courage amongst your friends to stand up for what is right and good. God has made you with a special purpose and we look forward to see how you grow and seek Him in everything you do. We also, pray 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.

Love and blessings from your Kindergarten teachers.




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.
