Last day of school (or the day of the shirt)
On the kids' last day of school in Auckland, all of their friends and classmates gathered round and signed their uniform shirts. Not sure what we'll do with those now, but it was fun for them to be the center of attention for a few minutes just before they left forever.
Laurel's was already done by the time I got there, but Trey went off of school grounds to have his signed, so I did get to see that.
They both made so many nice friends. It's such a shame that we're so far from them now and that they really won't stay in touch with most of them over time. It's just the way things go. I hope they'll keep talking to at least one or two of them.
Trey's friend Nick was leaving this group of friends, too, to attend a private school, so he got his shirt signed too.
This is the Year 8 graduation ceremony. I'm sure Trey did not earn any awards in just two terms, unless he got a master scone maker trophy, so he must've been up there to receive his diploma. That's his friend, Cam, next to him.
Goodbye lovely little Churchill Park School!! We miss you!!
