In the end, the Year 6 students at Northshore Christian Grammar have not only learned academic lessons but also valuable life skills, fostering a sense of community, resilience, and a spirit of adventure that will undoubtedly serve them well in the years to come.
Our year 6 cohort is now ready to enter Secondary school with a solid foundation that was poured before them – a foundation we are very blessed to be a part of.
To the Year 6’s, don’t despair that you are now on the “foundation level” of your lives, but rather take courage in Timothy 4:12
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
Take encouragement that even though you are young, you are called to set an example for believers and that you are building forward on a fantastic foundation. And above all, remember that our Heavenly Father loves you.
Congratulations to the Year 6 Classes of 2023. The world awaits the brilliance you will undoubtedly bring to it.
