Last Day Of School

On the final day of school I didn't know what to expect. I said to my friends and I that I wouldn't cry at the end of the day. I didn't know if I was going to. School was finishing at 12:30 and I really didn't want things to end so fast. But at our assembly at the end of the day Mr Burt told all of us year 8's to load onto the stage. Right before we all said our "Happy Holidays" Gabriel thanked the teachers on behalf of the yr 8's once more. Then out of the blue all the yr 8 boys stood up in a fierce mode. So the girls decided to stand up to.

The boys were doing their haka they had all learnt in one days effort. They were going all out and it looked really epic! The stage was shaking, and the girls were starting to tear up. When finally the boys finished their haka a couple of the girls had already started to cry. It was getting to me, but I hardened up and held it in. After the whole school yelled out "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" after 3 go's it was time to say good-bye. We all stood up on the stage, and went running around and saying our farewells to each other.

After almost hugging every single student I decided to turn to the teachers. I still hadn't cried, but everyone around me was crying. It was astonishing for me, cause I would of thought I would be the first to break down. Once I started to approach Miss Jamali, I started to tear up. Once she hugged me was when I completely broke down into tears, and started to cry like a baby. I said my farewells to almost every teacher before I headed outside to where the rest of the class of 2013 were.

I started to walk for the gates to make my way to Swima-rama, but as I did, I turned around and saw everyone in the courtyard. It was probably the most heartbreaking moment of my life walking out of those gates. But as I did so, I thought to myself, what a wonderful life I've had here at Pt England. I will forever cherish all the memories that I had made here. And with those thoughts I walked out of the gate............ I'm gonna miss being a student at Pt England School definitely. And I'm going to miss all the friends I made their, who weren't just my friends, but had become family to me!
