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


Kathryn, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlKathryn, some things that we love about you are the way you notice how you can help others and take responsibility. You understand that serving others is a way of giving to others, and you have a unique, God-given gift in serving others which you joyfully offer to fill up another person with love, and in doing so find your own joy. We love your thoughtfulness, Kathryn!

heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy making connections with many different concepts and observations. You enjoy taking the lead in group situations. You thrive on learning and achieving to high standards, and are capable of sharing your knowledge with others.

heart-smlKathryn, you are very interested in many mathematical and design skills, and have made many shops over your time here! You have an eye for detail and use this in your work and play. You are interested in finding out how, what, where why.

heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are Helpfulness, Resourcefulness, Assertiveness, Enthusiasm, Responsibility, Orderliness, Serving, Creativity, Caring, Confidence, Perseverance.


Kathryn, our prayer for you is that you will settle quickly into your classroom, learn lots of new and interesting things, and make long lasting and special friendships. You have been created for a special reason and we pray that God will guide you on your learning journey and that God will fill you with joy and peace as you start school. May God bless you and may you grow in his wisdom and love.




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.
