Year 6 Students Reflecting on Their Primary Years
Reflection Days are an important aspect of College life. They allow students time away from the classroom to reflect on their journey through school, learn more about themselves and those around them and where God fits in.
Our Year 6 students enjoyed reflecting on and celebrating their primary years at their Reflection Day last Friday. The girls took time to reflect and celebrate what they have learnt and who they’ve become, while looking to the future and what they are excited about for Year 7.
The day started with a lovely mass, celebrated by Father Hugh with their parents. After Mass the girls participated in Reflection Day activities, ending the day with a fun evening celebrating their time together. The staff enjoyed the day as much as the girls did.
I would like to acknowledge the work done by the Year 6 parent volunteers who helped in setting up, during the evening and in the clean up afterwards. Your creativity and support was terrific and very much enjoyed and appreciated by everyone.
Reflection Day was a great way to reflect on our experiences of our past primary years. Building a tree helped us represent and reflect on our personal characteristics and groundings that we discovered in our primary schooling. Plus learning about our worries for high school and how to deal with them, and what we are looking forward to in the years to come. Isabella Morrison, Kallysta Lim & Stella Penello
The Reflection Day was a fun and enjoyable way to find out what to expect in Year 7. Our favourite part of Reflection Day was when the Year 7s came in and talked to us about what to expect while moving to Year 7. They also answered all our questions and queries. Reflection Day was a good way to end Year 6, start a new life in Year 7 and to let all our worries go. Ava Law & Georgia Peacock
