This week we say farewell to our Year 12 students. Many will be going onto complete exams in the next few weeks; some will be going onto employment and others taking that next step in their lives.
As a word of advice to the Year 12’s who are finishing, life is a series of events, both good and bad. No matter how deft your organisational skills, there will always be life influencing factors over which you may have no control.
As you embark on this new stage of life, you will be able to rise to the occasion because of the values our school has taught you. On such occasions think of the values the teachers have instilled in you and you will make us proud. "Change indeed is painful, yet over needful", said Thomas Carlyle.
Maitland Area School is going to miss you.
We hope that someday you will look upon your days here fondly and remember the staff who made a difference in your life. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
