Farewell to our Year 4s
Good Luck to the Class of 2020 and all our leavers!!
The Full Stop Day
Last six hours of Lower School
Goodbye is getting near,
The sums and sentences are all done
The full stop day is here.
Last five hours of Lower School
Where everything's before,
The aims and games and crazes
No one’s crazy for no more.
Last four hours of Lower School
Surrounded by a class,
Who'll scatter soon and not return
When summer’s days have passed.
Last three hours of Lower School
One final lunchtime play,
Instead of chasing friends we try
To chase and catch the day.
Last two hours of Lower School
The clock hands blur and skid,
Signing shirts, remembering
The coolest things we did.
Last one hour of Lower School
With teachers who understood,
And helped me see I could achieve
Because they believed I could
Last ever minute of Lower School
The full stop rings in our ears,
But a thousand chapters left to write
We must vacate our childhood site,
For time moves on and the time is right.
To leave our wonder years!
