We had been out to buy a new dress for the occasion and we got up extra early this morning to put the hair up in a pretty bun with blue flowers.
The auditorium was decorated with fairy lights, silver and blue stars and balloons and a long red carpet as the theme was "Oscar-style". There was a few speeches from the Head Master and a few of the teachers, and also we got a recap of the EY1-Grade 5 years, by the students.
Then they were presented with their certificates:
A short movie clip of the receiving of the certificate:
Also we got to listen to "Oh, the places you'll go", recited by all six Grade 5 classes.
A glittery confetti rain to end the ceremony!
After the ceremony we were invited up to the Grade 5 classrooms, to continue the celebration and have a look at a lovely student tribute, prepared by their teachers:
The whole ceiling was covered in the Grade 5's baby photos, and all their aspirations for the future, very cute!
Linnea with her Grade 5 teacher, Miss Kim:
It really felt like the last day of school with all these festivities, but no, we still have a few days to go before school is out next Thursday.
We took one happy little graduate for lunch though as they were dismissed early. Nutella pancakes seemed fitting to celebrate the big promotion!
Bring on Middle School!
