It is with great excitement of a new adventure that I go to Lutheran Education Australia next term, but it is with much sadness that I leave Navigator. That’s because of the wonderful relationships I have built with so many of you.
TO THE STAFF:
You are an amazing group of educators and administrators who will always push yourselves to deliver the best possible educational program you can for your students. Together we have come on a journey over the past seven and a half years that has enriched and empowered my life. You have been caring friends and wonderful, supportive colleagues, and for that I thank you.
TO THE STUDENTS:
Every single one of you continues to be in my prayers, even though I move on to another place. I have spent time with many of you over the years and during my days here and my interactions with you, you make me realize why I chose to be a teacher. Your positive attitude and your love of learning makes me feel blessed that God has given me the opportunity to have known you all. It has been wonderful watching you grow into the successful students you are. I certainly am looking forward to coming back to see the Year 12 students graduate at the end of the year at their Valedictory service and hearing about all the year’s achievements.
TO THE PARENTS:
You have welcomed me into your community as we all share in the education of your children. You have accepted me, supported me and encouraged me. Most of all I am so thankful that through you I have had the opportunity to come to know each of your children. You trust the school with these most treasured possessions, – your child, your children. For that I can only say thank you.
May God bless you all as you have blessed me.
In Christ, Kaye Mathwin-Cox
“Finally, brothers, goodbye. Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. …… May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:11 and 14)
