Completion of the 2011 School Year

Neo graduated from Preschool.

Today, December 16, is the last day of school! In the last few days, there have been parties, a talent show, a "thank you" tea, Christmas carols, and report cards. All these events were wonderful and treasured.

Tristan on Presentation Day

We received two invitations to attend "Presentation Day" at Copacabana Public School to see Zoe and Tristan receive awards. Tristan had earned an honor and was to be awarded. There are 6 students from each classroom awarded for various academic or citizenship achievements. Tristan received top honor from his teacher, Mrs. Wilson. His award was for "Academic Achievement and Effort in All Key Learning Areas". He also received a book.

One of the paintings that was submitted for Clara

Neo had a Christmas party with his preschool class. He also participated in a graduation ceremony. There will be a family Christmas party on Monday night at the Surf club. Neo is thrilled to be ready for "big school".

We are excited for Clara as her painting will be on display in a local art gallery. Her teacher submitted two of her paintings on her behalf for the selection committee. Her painting will be part of an exhibition displayed from 16 February to 14 March at the Gosford Regional Art Gallery. According to the Exhibition website, "around 80 artists were chosen from 300 submitted to appear. The link to the Gallery Exhibitions page is here. In addition, she received an award for being the "best Visual Artist in Year 8".

Clara's painting that will be exhibited....here it's not finished.

We are very proud of each of our children and their achievements this year.
