The Preppies celebrated the last day of term four with Circus Day. Dressed in crazy and colourful costumes the parade of clowns, tigers, acrobats, ringmasters and many more marched through the school before enjoying a hilarious magic show with Smarty Pants the clown. We then moved to the BSC for tenpin bowling, dancing, face painting, balloon twisting and a jumping castle! It was a wonderful way to finish the term and we are so proud of how much the Preppies have learnt and grown in their first year at Parklands. Well done friends, we will see you in Year One!

We ended the year well and we enjoyed making memories with our teachers and friends.
As Term 4 draws to a close we are wanting to reflect back on the past couple of weeks with our year 6’s before we farewell them off to high school.
We were recently able to celebrate their achievements and share in their graduation with their families. We were so proud of them as each student confidently walked across the stage to receive their Year 6 certificate. We were blessed that after a fairly hectic year we were still able to celebrate with morning tea alongside their parents. Following a successful graduation ceremony we spent the rest of the day celebrating the students with morning tea and a gift from us that they could get their fellow classmates to sign as a keepsake.
Our final week of Year 6 has been a busy one but we were fortunate enough to end our year with a trip to Dreamworld. With the weather looking bleak, we were unsure what the day would bring but we were blessed with no rain. The students enjoyed the rides with minimal lines which meant going back on the same crazy roller coasters over and over. The bus trip home was a quiet one with exhausted students and even more exhausted teachers.
We want to say a huge congratulations to each student as they end their primary school years and move on to middle school. We are incredibly proud of how much each student has grown and matured this year. We hope and pray that each of them will continue to grow in their faith and be role models for those around them in all that they do. We wish them the best of luck heading into Year 7 and beyond.
