On this very special evening, we acknowledged our 5 amazing Year 12 and Year 13 graduating students - Mehdi, Harrison, Zeynab, Juliet and Kaitlin. We looked back on their years at Burbridge School, their many successes and the fun times through the lens of some amazing music videos that brought knowing smiles from families and staff. Our graduating students were also somewhat spell bound by this special journey down memory lane and appreciated that this day was indeed about them.
By way of a special tribute, we also heard the inspirational celebratory poems written and read by our dedicated classroom teacher Naomi. Needless to say, almost everyone was moved to tears by the sincerity and deep felt care and sentiment that went behind her words, videos and this evening’s entire showcase. One thing was clear, our graduating students have done our school and their families proud with their achievements and we wish them a warm goodbye as they embark on their adult life.
A special mention and thank you to the parents, families, staff and Councillor James Rowe who came to mark this special milestone in our students lives. It was wonderful to see such a great turn out and we hope everyone who attended this special evening took away some fond memories to hold dear in their hearts of our very special young adults and their inspiring and unique journey at Burbridge School.
