Students and community members at Beechwood Public School came together to celebrate the great work of students during Education Week 2019.
Lots of students were acknowledged with awards for effort, citizenship and attitude in the classroom with the dance group also performing at the ceremony on August 7.
Past student Samantha King spoke at the ceremony telling tales of all her fond memories at Beechwood.
"As I walked through the gate on my way back into the school so many fond memories came flooding back from my years here at Beechwood," Ms King said.
"I was lucky enough to be given so many amazing opportunities and I am very grateful for the nurturing and caring environment that the staff at Beechood provided.
"Since leaving here in 2012 I have finished my HSC and am currently in a gap year before heading off to university to study secondary teaching.
"One thing I took away from Beechwood was my ability to be an independent learner and I also learnt the valuable lesson that anything is possible if you are willing to try and have a go."
