Back to school for Graeme College Foundation Phase
There was a buzz of excitement in the Foundation Phase on Tuesday morning. Lots of excited parents joined their sons in the Grade 1 classroom to share in this positive atmosphere. The excitement continued in the hall, where, during an assembly attended by all Grade 1 to 12 boys, the Grade 1s were made to feel part of “big school” by the singing of “Sons of the Leopard” as they entered. Once the parents were waved goodbye, and the Foundation phase boys were back in class, it was work as usual for Grade 1 and 2, and time for the Grade 1’s to find their feet. The
Grade 2 boys also got rid of any worries about their new grade by giving these worries to the “Worry Monster”. After a hot and tiring week, all the boys were happy to go home with lots of new experiences behind them. On Thursday this week was also the Junior school’s first assembly from Grade 1-7.
