Pia, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlPia, some things that we love about you are your amazing enthusiasm for learning, conversation, and discovery which is contagious. You have shared your intent interest and compassion for animals with us – we love your dramatic animal sounds and actions. We love your desire to make the most of the moments you have each and every day.

heart-smlPia, you are very interested in everything there is to know about every one of the creatures in creation. You have enjoyed the friendships that you have made here and have learnt some wonderful skills to make and keep friendships. You are curious about science, colour and making things beautiful!

Pia, our prayer for you is that as you transition to primary school you continue to grow and develop into the amazing young person God has made you to be. We pray that your transition goes smoothly and you make some great new friends and that you accomplish many great things as you develop your unique and God given talents. May you really enjoy your first days at school and grow in God’s wisdom and love. With love and blessings from your Kindergarten teachers.
