It's Jessica's last year at primary school, and she can't wait to start intermediate next year. She will be attending the all girls Marist College in Mt Albert along with her bff and several gym friends.
Today was the annual Year 6 Leaving Assembly at Mangere Bridge School, where all the Y6s have to say some words and prizes are given out.
Bad momma stayed at work, but had arranged for deputies to attend (Nana, G'ma, Grandad and DH) and my spies on the spot have just reported in.
Jess, along with her very bright friend Brittany, jointly won the Academic Award.
I'm stoked. Jess has worked very hard on bringing her maths up to standard, and had started beating Britney in some recent English tests. I'm so pleased her hard work has been rewarded this way.
She had also been nominated for the Citizenship Award - this one the kids decide who should be nominated (2 from each class = 6 nominees) and then it goes to a vote. They are encouraged to vote for the person who they feel is responsible, fair, helpful, basically a role model. She didn't get it, but that's ok - just to be nominated is pretty damn great in my opinion.
Way to go Jessica!
