As the year draws to an end

Our school has now been up and running for nearly two years. It is soon time for our very first Grade 9 Graduation ceremony. When I think back on the last two years I can't believe how quickly it has passed. I remember the day in February of 2011 when Ms Österman and I arrived at the school with nothing. We had to take a trip to Ikea to buy ourselves a desk and chair to be able to start the process of putting a school together. How far we have come! It sometimes surprise me, when I walk around the school, and pop into classrooms, that we are still a school in it's infancy. It seems that the incredible staff that we have have taken the bull by the horns and created the feal of an 'old school'.

I am so blessed to have the amazing teachers that I have, and I know that the students would agree with me. I often hear talk from students about the incredible things that their teachers do for them. It is this type of dedication from staff that make us different. 

I would like to take this opportunity to honour my teachers for what they have done this year!
