Will, we have loved getting to know you.

heart-smlWill, some things that we love about you are the way you play and interact with your friends including them in everything you do here at the centre during the day. Everything you do is done to the full extent and with a lot of enthusiasm. Your ability to engage in just about every area of the kindy and enjoy being included in the activities.  

heart-smlWe’ve noticed that you enjoy are playing in the sandpit with your friends, using the water to make rivers and damns and making bridges to make your way across the rivers. Your love of building in the carpentry area and making all sorts of things especially bird houses and feeders. You also enjoy pulling things apart to see how they work and this included our mobility scooter.

heart-smlWill, you are very interested in making and keeping good friendships with your peers and are very loyal to them. You love the mechanical world we live in and are very interested in not just making things but also pulling them apart. Your interest in building is well known and you are very involved in the process as well as the product which you are very proud of.

heart-smlThe character virtues we have seen you develop are caring, commitment, courage, confidence, creativity, compassion, enthusiasm, friendliness, forgiveness, honest, integrity, joyfulness, loyalty, respect, thankfulness, trustworthiness, and understanding.


Will, our prayer for you is that as you transition to primary school is that you quickly settle into your routines and enjoy the opportunities to extend your learning as you engage in activities. I pray you make long lasting and special friendships and accomplish many great things as you develop your unique and God given potential. William, may you grow in God’s wisdom and love.
