WESLEY Vale Primary School farewelled its class of 2012 yesterday, but thats not all they were saying goodbye to.
As of the start of the 2013 school year, Wesley Vale Primary School will merge with Moriarty Primary School to become Andrews Creek Primary School.
As each of the grade 6 achievement awards were presented at the assembly, each awards sponsor reminisced on the history of the school and said they were looking forward to a brighter future.
Its certainly a wonderful place to be, Liberal MP Adam Brooks said.
Congratulations to all the staff and students on such a wonderful place to learn.
Audrey Campbell, of the Wesley Vale-Sassafras Country Womens Association, said it was definitely a sad time for the school, but also a happy one and said next year would be an exciting time for pupils.
Latrobe councillor and inaugural chairman of the school association, Garry Sims, said this year was a time for change, but said those moving on to new schools next year should keep their experiences and memories of Wesley Vale to help keep the spirit of the school alive.
That message was strongly put to those staying behind to learn at Andrews Creek Primary School in 2013.
Wesley Vale Primary School principal Sue Tucker said the school had definitely had a strong history and said it was those experiences and friendships that would take the school on to success in its new future.
Today is a day of significance, Ms Tucker said.
Today is about all of us here looking forward and looking back.
Ms Tucker said in her time as principal she had seen pupils grow and learn, and make friends and the experiences she had had were so humbling.
It’s been an amazing journey, she said.
Wesley Vale Primary School held it’s the last school assembly before merging with Moriarty Primary next year.
