The final assembly of the school is always a time when emotions of all kinds run high.
First some happy emotions: Mr Drury gave some of the children the last awards of the year for various achievements.
Then it was time to wish Mrs Allen all the best for the arrival of her baby in a couple of months. We hope all goes well and that you have a chance to relax over the Summer and prepare yourself for the new arrival.
Then it was time for the happy and sad emotions:
Mrs Clegg has has worked at Wanborough Primary for 16 years and has made a massive contribution to the life of the school.
As an HLTA she has overseen just about every class at different times and has of course been particularly successful in music and singing, both with the Choir and the school as a whole. Her tireless work resulted in the school being given the Gold Sing-Up award, which is really hard to achieve.
Mrs Clegg has also worked in many other areas, notably RE and in preparing the children for church services and musical events.
Before she could finish and enjoy her well deserved retirement, we put her musical knowledge to the test with a tricky quiz. She got 9 out of 10, which was above the pass mark, so, reluctantly, we had to let her go!
We all wish you the very best in your retirement!
The most bittersweet moment of all. Time to say 'Goodbye' to the pupils of Year 6.
They have become a really close knit group and have been outstanding in all aspects of school, culminating in the trip to France and the amazing performance of 'Wizard of Oz'.
We know that they will continue to be a credit to the school and their families in their new schools and, although today there were some sad emotions, that they will look back with the happy memories that they certainly deserve of their time at Wanborough Primary School.
