Two goodbye letters from former pupils of Kendale:
The time has come for us to move on from this school and I can swear it is not easy at all. Especially when it means leaving a school like you, Kendale. You are the school that every child dreams of, the school that in a short time becomes your home. The school that you miss in the summer and love in the winter. I could never say that the last 6 years of my life were boring because of all the experiences I've had and the people I've met here. I rememberthe first day ever in Kendale when my mom came to enrol my in this school. I went into the office where I met a well-dressed lady whom I later discovered was Mrs. Fabriani. I didn't know what my mother was doing until the lady said "Welcome to your new school!" Then I made friends with my class and even made a best friend. Something I really enjoyed was Art Week, a whole week of art activities. My favourite year was fourth grade, that was the year I had to grow up and be part of a bigger class. I was scared at first but then I became best friends with one of the girls in the older class, and we are still friends today! We went on a four-day trip to Florence and the following year we went to Greece. These few lines are never going to be enough to list all the qualities of this school or all the memories I have lived here. I thank all of the teachers who taught us with love and care. That said, I can finally say Goodbye Kendale!

Thank you, Kendale, for all these years in this 'learning for life' school. I never thought it would end. I want to leave this experience knowing that I have learned and grown, realising that: Kendale once, Kendale forever! Now I understand that the teachers here took so much time to teach us and they did it in the hope that one people will realise that Kendalians are special.
I know that everyone in this school, from the smallest to the biggest, will grow and will not fail, for even people who may not seem special or important are special with an important role to play in this world.
We can be who we want to be, we can lead if we want to. We are the new generation and the world will be in our hands! It is up to us to create a new world. Hard work will always be recognised.
Lastly I would like to thank not only my teachers but my classmates who are friends for life. Goodbye Kendale and good luck!
