The air was filled with laughter and hugs and the odd tear abounded as another Year 12 group said goodbye to Eden Marine High on Friday, September 23.
The farewell assembly started with a ‘pumped up’ entrance, which was followed by thank you speeches from students and gifts were presented to key staff.
Parting words of wisdom were offered by relieving principal Leesa Wungluck, and the Year 12 advisor Keith Barrett, and the musical talents of Year 12 were on display throughout the assembly.
The DVD presentation of the students’ six years at EMHS really highlighted to the students the many things they have achieved together as a cohort. Bronte Balodis and Ally Crowe, who created the DVD were thanked by other students for their time and efforts on such a valuable keepsake.
The assembly ended with the year group leaving to the applause of the crowd.
As the students said goodbye many of them reflected positively on their time at Eden Marine High.
“School has been an amazing experience and we’ve made friends for life,” Clancy McKenzie said.
“‘I cannot believe it’s finally ending! Some of our best memories are from school. We are really going to miss school,” friends Amy Giggins and Holly-Anne Bennetts said.
“We have learnt a number of skills that have prepared us for a future of employment and further education,” Ben Kopecky Mills said.
An impressive morning tea followed the assembly which was lovingly created by Year 11 hospitality students.
“We wish our students the best of luck in their upcoming HSC exams and future endeavours,” Mr Barrett said.
