We had a lot to celebrate as Mrs Byers, Headteacher, reflected on the success and achievements of our Year 6 children in the annual Awards Ceremony at the end of term. Each child was reminded of highlights of their time at Broomfield, through the recollections and anecdotes recalled by their teachers and other staff. Cups were presented to every child, which were awarded based on their own individual experiences and which revealed their strengths and passions.
Our keynote speaker was Libby Nicholas, MD Dukes Education, who gave an inspiring address encouraging the children to maintain the qualities of:
- Curiosity – the golden key to progress, ask questions, read books, increase knowledge.
- Creativity – the future is as exciting as you make it, so dream big!
- Courage – lead with your heart, embrace fears and face them to be amazed at what you can do.
- Kindness –be serious about this, stand up for others and help those in need – including yourself.
Ultimately her advice was that the children should be proud of who they will come to be, and to celebrate the journey that will take them there.
At the end of the event their school hats went flying as they began the process of casting off the old and welcoming the new. We wish them every happiness as they start in their senior schools and know that those schools are extremely lucky to have them.
Well done Year 6, we pay tribute to all you have contributed to Broomfield and trust you to take that positive attitude with you as you tackle new things and get involved in new activities and communities. May all your dreams come true.
