You really are so special to us all. Thank you for playing your part to make St.Augustine’s such a wonderful school to work and learn in. To express our gratitude to you, we have put together a compilation of songs which have been carefully chosen by staff members. We hope that you enjoy them.
Take care and God bless,
Well done Year 6, you’ve got there. That’s 7 years of learning, of making friends, of falling out, of school trips, of tests and everything in between. 7 years of laughter, of tears, of reflection and excitement, of teaching assistants and teachers. 7 years of rainy Mondays in November and beautiful afternoons in May. 7 years of new classrooms, new rules, summer uniforms, winter uniforms and lunches hot and cold. Think of this as not an end of the book but the end of a chapter and I hope, like me, you can’t wait to read on to find out what happens next.
Hi Year 6,
I have chosen this song for you as I know how much you all enjoyed it when Miss Rogers and I performed it at Christmas. I have missed saying goodbye to you all. I wish you all the very best for your new adventure at secondary school. Just try hard and be your lovely selves and you will all be fine.
Be the best you can be!
Love Mrs Smith
I wish you all the very best for your future, I have enjoyed our moments together, being in year 4 through to year 6. My favourite memories are with you at Minstead, you really did me proud along with sleepless nights and wobbly jelly!!!! We've had the time of our lives in school and I encourage you to always follow your dreams and be happy.
Much love from Mrs Me-in xx
Dear Year 6,
My message to you is based upon the title of the song I chose for you- 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'
'You'll Never Walk Alone' is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical 'Carousel.' The song is also sung at association football clubs around the world, where it is performed by a massed chorus of supporters on match day; this tradition developed at Liverpool F.C. after the chart success of the 1963 single of the song by local Liverpool group 'Gerry and the Pacemakers.'
In some areas of the UK and Europe, 'You'll Never Walk Alone' became the anthem of support for medical staff, first responders, and those in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a special song to me and is my gift to you. For me, it replicates the message that is important for you to take with you as you continue to prosper and grow into the next chapter of your lives. You have all been such a pleasure Year 6, and it has been an honour to be your Headteacher. From the bottom of my heart- best wishes and good luck.
To our wonderful Year 6 Class of 2020,
Well done for a wonderful time at St Augustine’s, you have done us all proud!
Remember to always work hard, be kind to everyone you meet and most importantly do things that make you happy!
Wishing you all the best for a happy, healthy and successful future.
With love, Mrs Gray
The words to the song I have chosen says it all...
So come on, so come on, get it on I don't know what you're waiting for Your time is coming don't be late, hey hey So come on See the light on your face Let it shine Just let it shine Let it shine
This is your time to shine! Good luck on your new adventures!
Love Mrs Bladon
So now the time has come for you to travel on your way
New adventures, new beginnings – but your memories will stay.
I wish each and every one of you happiness and success
Go forth and conquer everything – settle for nothing less!
Music and performing arts mean such a lot to me,
And many of you shared your gifts for everyone to see.
Your talents number many, and so you should be proud
Please go on and share them – declaring them out loud!
An extra special ‘Thank you’ to those who played in the school band
The joy of making music is a gift, you’ll understand.
I will be sad to lose you of this you can be sure
But I hope you are excited for all the new things to explore.
Best wishes and prayers – Mrs Ayles
Dear Year 6,
I wish you all the best of luck at your new schools in September. I know you will all do brilliantly. It is so sad that we have not been able to give you a proper send off this year and for you to experience a normal year 6 but I have been thinking of you all and I am so proud of the way you have handled everything.
The song I have chosen is all about growing up!
Have a wonderful and relaxing summer with your friends and family!
This song sums it up:
"If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm going to make this place your home"
You have a bright and exciting future ahead of you children.
It's been a pleasure to have been part of the beginning of your learning journey and to have seen you thrive during your time with us.
St. Augustine's School has been your home for seven years. You'll always hold a special place in our hearts, so as you leave and live your life to the full, please remember us as we're always here for you.
Dear Year 6
I wish you all the very best in your new chapter. It has been a pleasure to see you enjoy and experience lots of new things at St Augustine school.
Love Mrs Harrop
Hi Year 6,
Good luck Year 6, its been a pleasure to get to know you all, I wish you well in your new venture!
love Mrs Johnson
My message for you all is to always try your best and believe in yourselves. Be confident and stand tall but most of all be happy and surround yourselves with good friends.
Take good care of yourselves.
From Miss Rogers
I am really sad to see you all go. I really enjoyed chatting with you all at playtimes!
Keep up your hard work and be extra good.
lots of love Mrs Haycock
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go So make the best of this test and don't ask why It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable, but in the end its right I hope you had the time of your life
Your time at St. Augustine’s has inevitably come to an end but change is part of your life journey. Your future is unknown but you can make it what you want it to be. I hope you will take with you precious memories which you will always cherish. Ignore the first part of the title, we will miss you. Goodbye, good luck and God bless!
We are all children at heart - never grow up - always keep the child in you.
Dance as though no one is watching you.
Sing as though no one can hear you.
Live like heaven is on earth!
Wishing you all the very best in your years ahead.
Love Mrs Wilkins xx
'I hear babies crying, I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know.'
This really is a wonderful world despite the times we are going through.
Embrace every opportunity that comes your way and enjoy your life as your move on.
But always remember the good times and good friends that you had at St. Augustine's.
It has been a privilege to have taught you and to have watched you grow.
From Mrs Harding
This song is all about moving on and finding new friends and reconnecting with old friends.
You have all made wonderful friends through the years at St Augustines but may not have seen them recently. September is your chance to reconnect with old friends and form new friendships that will last a lifetime.
I wish you all the best in your new adventures! It has been a pleasure to be there and experience your last few years at St Augustines. I am sure you will all thrive and excel in your new schools and I hope that you will remember the great times you had with us all.
Good luck and have fun!
It has been a pleasure getting to know you Year 6. Enjoy the challenges to come, wishing you lots of luck for secondary school and beyond!
From Mrs Wootton
Year 6 - cherish the memories you have created in primary school, hope that you will always look back on them with fondness.
From Mrs Baskerville xx
