2017 Parkview Public School's year 6 class bids farewell at graduation

THE biggest year 6 class at Parkview Public School in recent memory has bid farewell.

Punctuated by various sets of twins, fun personalities and huge achievements, the class of 2017 will now be moving onto high school next year. 

The school hosted a special graduation dinner last week, which was attended by the students, their parents and staff members. 

Parkview Public principal Travis Irvin said 59 students made up the group. 

“As much as it was a graduation as such, it was more just an opportunity to get together and wish the students all the best as they move on to high school,” he said. 

“This year 6 group has been an absolute pleasure. 

“Their parents have also been fantastic and really helped to shape our school over the years.”

The night was held at the Leeton Soldiers Club with the children enjoying dressing in their best smart/casual outfits, dining out and, of course, cutting the graduation cake. 

Several of the class members also addressed the crowd on the night thanking their parents and staff and speaking about their time at the school.

“It was a great night for everyone just recognising all this group has achieved over the years,” Mr Irvin said.
