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




Ryan, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlRyan, some things that we love about you are: Your caring nature, your inquisitive mind, and the way you love bringing interesting ideas to activities, and are able to relate different positive behavior or action with virtuous super heroes. We love your ability to build and create using your awesome imagination and creative ideas. You have a sense of fun, and lovely positive attitude, an amazing smile and are inclusive in your play with others.

heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy building houses and spaces to explore and play with others – in the sandpit and anywhere else you can find to make a home! You enjoy science experiments, trying things out and having a go. You enjoy making shows and trying out different roles that capture your interest, playing games, and fun friendships with others.

heart-smlRyan, you are very interested in God’s creation and the world around you. You are fascinated with things that can transform and love to ask questions about how things work. You are interested in exploring roles of people (particularly fire men, police men, rubbish men) and never miss an opportunity to explore these relationships through role play and family play.

heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are Confidence, creativity, consideration, generosity, enthusiasm, caring, assertiveness, determination, service, and adaptability.

heart-smlRyan, our prayer for you is that you will know God’s goodness and love for you all through your school life. We pray that it will be a smooth transition and you will continue to grow in a love for learning and a love for others. We pray that you will be confident in who God is and who he has made you to be. Arohanui from your Kindergarten teachers 🙂

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all Forever and ever, Amen



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.
