Well Done, Grade 12.

Grade 12 and MrT on their last day of school - The Earth Day celebrations!

Grade 12 and MrT on their last day of school - The Earth Day celebrations! Thanks Mrs Schlaadt for the photo.

It’s all over for most of you today, and I was encouraged to see some smiles down by your social area. Was it because you thought it went well, or is it because you anticipate your freedom, graduation and the new adventures of university? Perhaps I’ll never know.

You’ve been a ton of fun and I am fortunate to have been your teacher – even if you have at times accelerated the premature greying of my hair. I hope your efforts are rewarded in July and that you keep in touch. I really do hope that at least some of what you have learned sticks with you – especially issues related to the environment and health.

Now you guys have some relaxing to do (or studying, French B students), and I have a commencement address and your reports to write.

You’ve been awesome.
