KOTA KINABALU – Ninety-six children graduated from Tadika St Francis on 10 Nov 2017 at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre here.
It was also the school’s annual concert day.
The event began with a procession of the children garbed in graduation robes and caps making their entry into the hall. They were led by the kindergarten’s Board of Governors comprising chairman Damian Lee, secretary Alice Imelda Chin, and committee members Philip Yong and Cynthia James.
Joining in the procession were headmistress Grace Shim and assistant headmistress Prencesca V Kimsan.
The programme started with the National Anthem, State Anthem and the school song followed by an opening prayer by Father Joshua Liew.
In his convocation address, Lee complimented the graduates on their achievements. He also congratulated the teachers for their dedication and hard work in shaping the children through education and other co-curriculum activities.
He also addressed the parents and adults present on the importance of sending children to the Mission Kindergarten so that children can be moulded in all aspects – socially, emotionally, intellectually and above all, spiritually.
DISNEY was chosen as the theme for this year’s concert, which included various dance performances by the children. A special sketch on the issue of bullying was presented by the children, the teachers and “Aunty Patrin,” a DJ from KKFM.
The final performance was the rendition of two songs by the graduation classes of 2017, entitled “Yesterday’s Dream” and “A little Love.”
The kindergarten has nine classes with a population of 202 pupils. The graduates made up four classes.
Registration for 2018 is now open until January 2018.
