Year Six Graduation 2021

A graduation with a difference

Every year we celebrate our wonderful year six students as they head off to their new schools for the next stage of their learning journeys. This year we were unable to have our usual graduation festivities because of the strict Covid restrictions, so we had to find a new way to celebrate these amazing students.

The children who were at school were presented with their certificates, Manuka Bears and a bag of goodies in an outdoor gathering in their learning bubbles. The off site students were invited to come into school for a socially distanced celebration of their own. We then made some special videos so that families are able to enjoy the celebrations from the safety of their own homes. It was not the end of the year we hoped for, but it was a wonderful occasion none the less. One of our core school values is resilience. We sure have put this value into practice this year!

Happy graduation everyone

Year six Citizenship awards

Every year, two year six students are selected to receive a Year 6 Citizenship Award. These awards celebrate students who consistently display our Manuka School Values of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility. These students also contribute to our wider school community by taking on roles of responsibility such as being wet day monitors in the junior school, office duty monitors, road patrollers and members of sporting, cultural and creative groups. Here are the 2021 Year Six Citizens.
