Students reflect on primary years

CANNONVALE State School Year Seven students were farewelled last Wednesday night at a special awards ceremony.

Year Seven teachers Denise Veenstra and Peter Smith hosted the night and farewelled the students along with fellow staff members, parents and friends. Class awards were handed out in a variety of categories as well as individual awards.

Kristy Davidson and Lloyd Clode-Roberts were awarded the prestigious School Dux award, with Lloyd was also named sportsperson of the year and taking home the sports award. Principal Leigh Robinson said the awards recognised the hard work put in by students through out the year. "Farewells are not easy," she said.

"There is some sadness as well as joy involved. I just hope the students will always have fond memories of life at school, we will miss you."

Also farewelled on the evening was long serving staff member Kirsten Hoy who had dedicated 24 years of service to the school as library aid and in many other roles.

"It was a hard decision to make," Mrs Hoy said.

"I will miss the school, the job I do and all of the students who have been really lovely.

"I will miss the people I work with too."

Ms Robinson also thanked the parents, teachers and community members who had helped out at the school.
