Nineteen of the Guyra Preschool and Long Day Care Centre’s eldest students graduated in style on Friday, 29th November at a special ceremony held at the Guyra Bowling Club. The event showcased the children’s adventures through videos and photos taken during their time at the centre.
In a final performance, they showed off their singing and dancing talents, entertaining their parents, extended family and friends with an amazing rendition of Baby Shark. For the formal part of the day, the graduates all donned caps and gowns and were each presented with a certificate of congratulations along with a framed graduation photo. Armidale Regional Mayor Simon Murray and Business Manager Scot MacDonald attended the ceremony which proved to be an emotional day for both the children and their educators.
Preschool Supervisor Amanda Campbell said that the graduation was a thoughtful and fitting tribute to mark the end of their preschool years.
“At one point or another there was always a different teary eye or a photo and video being taken to capture this milestone,” Amanda said. “The educators are all proud of the kids and know they are more than ready to take on the world - we have no doubt in their capabilities and determination in facing the next stage of formal schooling.”
