Prep had their final celebration assembly where they said goodbye to their Year 6s and wished them luck for the future. The pupils read out a selection of their memories and were treated to a slideshow of pictures reminding them of how far they have come and how much they have accomplished while they’ve been here. Eliza read, “…I will really miss Prep – they have taught me so much and given me the confidence to do things. Thank you for welcoming me into your very special family.” Poppy commented, “Oakhill has given me lots of happy memories and I am looking forward to starting seniors and making new friends.” They all said that although they might be nervous to begin with, they are looking forward to moving on to seniors and doing new things.
