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



Taylor, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlTaylor, some things that we love about you are: Your caring heart and the words you use to share your feelings and ideas – you often have kind and caring words, gifts or ways of showing kindness to others. We love your sense of humour and fun, your descriptive words, drawings and paintings and the way you celebrate the success of others and yourself.

heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy drama, acting, music and story telling – you have drawn many into your mini productions. You enjoy painting, playing outside, playing games, gymnastics, swings, bikes and obstacle courses. You enjoy cooking and baking – whether with real food or in the sandpit or family play with your Kindy friends.

heart-smlTaylor, you are very interested in finding out about new ways to use colours, textures in creative projects. You observe the world around you carefully and ask questions, then sharing your growing knowledge with others. You are interested in shells and fossils, working with playdough, clay and fabric – we have worked on so many creative projects in your time here!

heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are creativity, encouragement, caring, love, gentleness, joyfulness, co-operation, determination, helpfulness, enthusiasm, kindness, loyalty.

heart-smlTaylor, our prayer for you is that as you transition to primary school you continue to grow and develop into the amazing person God has made you to be. We pray that you will use your caring heart soft to others and bless others as you share kindness with them. 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 Gods wisdom and love.

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.
