In my 2 years at St.Andrews school I have learnt many things. St.Andrews school makes me happy because I have learnt English and many other things. I really enjoy the teachers that I have had here because they help me to learn many things that I didn’t know before and also, all of my teachers are really responsible and nice to me! My favourite moment that I have enjoyed at St. Andrews was when I thought that I would never learn English (because I am from Belarus) and I did!! I'm really happy that my family and teachers and all of the staff support me! This school has made me responsible and respectful. Also, I really like and would recommend this school because everyone is really friendly to you and nice (the teachers too)! Another favourite thing at St.Andrews school that I have done was going to camp with all of the grade 6s. It was really fun! I’m really happy that I went to this school and I’m glad that I have really good teachers and friends! I will remember all of the moments at this school! Ilona
My final year of primary school has gone extremely well so far! This school is special because all of my friends that I’ve had since prep are still here each day and we have been enjoying ourselves in the last few days we have left together. My favorite thing about St. Andrews is that every year you move up a grade, you meet new people and create a ton of different fun memories with them. Eg: This year, I have made a new friend and her name is Catherine Nguyen. She is a great person and I hope that we still continue to be friends because she has been a great person to me. Polliana
I have been going to St. Andrews since Prep or as they now call it, Foundation. I have made some good friends over the years who I still play with to this day. I know lots of people and I would like to say that this school was a very good school. The staff are very friendly and everyone is kind to one another. If I were to say what makes this school special it would be that we have lots of different cultures at this school and we all accept each other. In my years at St. Andrews I have done pretty fun things such as special incursions and excursions, but the thing I most enjoyed was camp in years 4 and 6. Camp was a great way to interact with people we don’t usually talk to and it gave us the opportunities to challenge ourselves. For instance, at year 6 camp there was this activity called the giant swing. We had to be dropped from a really high distance, then swing back and forth like a swing. We could choose to go on it and I went to the top and thought about challenging myself. When I went up it was so high that I immediately regretted going on it. I was nervous and thrilled at the same time. All the staff are supportive of our skills and challenge us to strive to do our best. Overall, St. Andrews is a great school where everyone is accepted. I am glad that I went to this school. Rowan
Seven years at this school, and I am still not ready to leave. As I move to the next chapter of my life, I will never forget the memories and friends I have made here. At St. Andrews, I feel welcomed, and the community in so friendly, it is too hard to leave. This school has given me so many opportunities to express and enrich my learning, and I am so grateful for that. As school captain, I am thankful for the things I was able to take part of, these things will stay close to my heart. Camp was definitely a highlight, getting time to know my peers and having a lot of fun at the activities such as the giant swing and the flying fox. Throughout this journey, my teachers and parents have stuck by me, and I want to thank them for that. Without them, I would be nowhere near where I am today. Finally, I want to thank everyone that has been there for me, and I wish them all the best for the future. Jaida
Leaving St. Andrew’s will be very hard for me because of all of my friends, and memories that I've made here. There are many reasons for why St. Andrew’s is so special including the equality, friendly staff and students, big play areas and great opportunities, etc. St. Andrew’s has prepared me for the future by challenging me to do what I thought I couldn’t do, and by helping me to achieve my B.E.S.T. St. Andrew’s has given me a different perspective on life and has built me up to who I am today. My favourite memory in Primary School was my first day here at St. Andrew’s because as soon as I walked through the gates, I saw so many smiling and nervous faces. One of them mine. It has been a whole rollercoaster at St. Andrew’s but I don’t regret any of it :) I will definitely miss Primary school, but I am sure I will enjoy high school as well. Thank you to all the staff who have taught, and helped me through this (technically) short journey, also thank you to my parents and friends who have always been there for me no matter what!
Hello my name is Atika and I am the vice-captain of St Andrew’s for 2019. Being the vice-captain has made me have a different perspective of St Andrew’s. I can really see the hard work that is put into the St Andrew’s assemblies, national days and learning. Our school is very special to me because of the rules to do with wellbeing I really like how the teachers are so understanding and willing to help. St Andrew’s has truly prepared me for the future, by learning ways to tackle tasks and challenges that come our way.
My FAVOURITE memory from St Andrew’s by far has been my 100 days of school. I had a blast with all my friends and I was so willing to continue my primary years at St Andrew’s.
Now looking back on my seven years here I would like to thank all the teachers that have helped me become the person I am today. You have been so funny and caring. Every day when I walk into school I always see Mr Mills smiling through the window waving at all the students that come in. I am going to miss St Andrew’s so much next year. Thanks to all the teachers and staff at St Andrew’s.
In the beginning, I was very excited to start primary school. I’m pretty sure everyone called school ‘big school’ when they were in prep or foundation. Anyways, I was always a small curious child (and I still am) with an imaginative mind to seek the world, with a buzzing energy inside (I don’t know what happened there). I was always excited to explore everything and anything (ooh look it’s an ordinary chair that nobody cares about, but I’m going to look at it curiously anyway), and even though I still find average things so amazing, I am still your typical 11 year old.
Moving on, let’s talk about St. Andrew’s. I absolutely love my school, and I’m not just saying that to be that all rainbows and unicorns. I cherish every single memory that I have made here, every laugh, every tear, even every fall that I have made all mean so much to me. I think that what makes St. Andrew’'s so special is the connection between us all. When you step in St. Andrews, you can instantly hear friends laughing their heads off, being total lunatics. We are all so close to one another, and we all have our little and big groups that we all fit in and belong in. I’ve thought long and hard about one memory that I admire the most, but I’ve had so many interesting and different memories that I can’t just pick one.
Last but not least, thank you to all my friends that have supported me from the start to the end. You all have been so supportive and kind, ILY all sm!!! I will miss everyone so dearly at St. Andrew’s, including teachers and friends. Thank you all so much once again. I wish you all the very best.
