Welcome everyone to our very first Promotion Ceremony here at AXIS.
Today we recognize our current Kindergarten, Grade 5 and Grade 8 students whom, have worked, studied and learned their way to this moment. Each of them, through resilience and perseverance has traveled on their own educational journey of learning.Our students in kindergarten are ready and excited to take on the challenges of elementary school. Our grade 5 students have learned the foundational skills necessary to take on their next academic and social challenge, and our Grade 8 students, who move upward and into high school and prepare themselves for a future direction.
Each of these students deserves this recognition today. Here we celebrate their promotion: their move upward into the next phase of their learning. There will be challenges ahead. There will be joy, tears and laughter, but all are prepared. Their school journey thus far has readied them with the skills, the knowledge and the understandings they will need in this next phase of their learning.
Parents, teachers and friends, each of you has played a valuable role in them becoming who they are. You have supported their growth and development and they could not be the people they are today without you. They have done you proud and I know will continue to do so into the future.
Today as a school we are honored and excited to recognize each of them. It is our hope that they develop further into bold and compassionate leaders who continue to engage in learning and who find success and contribute to this ever-changing world.
