Bring On 2019
Finishing year 6 is scary. The last 7 years have gone by so quickly. I have made lots of great friends at Charleville SDE. Some have already left but I am still friends with them, like Josh. I have been friends with Lillie and Harry since prep and we still have fun together. Pheebe has only been here a for year 6 but we are friends too. I am friends with boys from the Roma cluster even though we don’t see eachother as much. I have had some great teachers like Ms Simmons and Miss Cooper.
I remember at my first school camp at Garapine in year 5, I was on the second story in our dorm. My friend was swinging his bag around (I’m not sure why) and he accidentally let go of it and it flew out the open window and down to the ground. It was so funny.
Good luck for next year everybody! I hope to see you around.

Renae's Leaving Speech
My name is Renae Hubbard and I have been fortunate to be one of the senior school captains with my good friend Savannah during 2018.
I completed year 1 with distance ed and then returned in year 8 to complete my high school year with WA. I have had so many awesome teachers that have taught me over these years and I can’t thank them enough.
Sports muster was one of my favourite times of the year. Meeting up with friends was always the highlight. Usually I would enter lot of arts and crafts because I am not the most athletic type. So, imagine my surprise when I broke the record for triple jump this year (of course it was the first time they had run that event). Then I went off to districts! Thanks Mr Morris for the training sessions. It was such a great experience.
Next year I will be heading off to Chinchilla to complete year 11 and 12.
Thanks again to all the teachers, friends and parents that make up the school community. I will miss you all and thank you for a great year.
Now I will hand it back to Savannah to finish off our speech…
Savannah Leaving Speech
Welcome invited guests, students, staff, parents and home tutors.
11 years ago, I was a little preppy with chubby cheeks and my, now cringey, headbands.
The senior girls used to pinch my cheeks because they thought I was cute. I couldn’t wait till I was older (and taller).
I never imagined myself 11 years from then standing up here delivering my leaving speech and saying farewell to CSDE.
Campbell West has also been doing Prep with me for those 11 years. We have both grown so much. Especially in height! It has been a pleasure to spend 11 years with you Campbell, thank you.
It has been a long journey from Prep to Year 10. I have been very fortunate to have many amazing teachers and classmates throughout my journey. My very first teacher was Miss Jenny Fisher, she taught me how to make fairy bread and spaghetti on toast. I still sometimes eat fairy bread for breakfast.
Over some of my years in primary school and high school I was very lucky (in some ways) to have my Mum as my teacher. There were many arguments, but also many good times. Mum usually says mothers are always right. But I still don’t agree with that Mum. There is only so much mothers can be right about!
And that first and last time I had Dad in the schoolroom. Let’s just say when he was my age he couldn’t wait to leave. I think that gives you all an idea of why that was his first and last time. Dad rarely came to any of our school events. He works a lot so it makes it really hard, I don’t think he’s the only one either.
I think the worst times during primary school were when we would have to pull out those MABs and coloured bears and count them. Do you even still use those? I never liked Maths… Mum even made a video about how much I didn’t like it for my teacher at the time. It was only until I was in High School that I started liking Maths.
I remember when our pody goat Rima ate the phone and internet cords. We had no internet or phone for at least a week. And when I would explain to my teachers, they found it rather funny. Of course, not at the time for us. Rima still lurks around the house and shed, and eats whatever looks edible. There are miniature versions of her now.
The days in the schoolroom where everything would get so hectic was the time where we would get up YouTube and play just dance or watch something hilarious. Or other days I would blast Disney soundtracks or K-Pop. That’s when Jayden would lose the plot and tell me to turn it off. Then just to annoy our govies it would be heavy metal!
Over my years at Charleville Distance Ed I have learnt a lot. No, I don’t mean just schoolwork. I have learnt to have patience (except for when the computer freezes), to always do my best and do everything to the best of my abilities. Recently, I just learnt that they now use a food circle. It was a triangle when I learn about the food groups. Just goes to show you do learn something everyday.
To my Year 10 class this year. We have done it, all those exams, assessments, send-ins and weird Science experiments. I wish you all the very best. Some of you are going straight into the workforce, some of you are continuing to 11 and 12 like me and maybe some of you just want to stay home and work out what you’re doing with your life.
To my teachers I have had over the years. Thank you! The only reason that I am able to say I have graduated is because of you. Without teachers there would be no school.
Mrs O, you have been with us for 11 years. You are simply amazing. Every lesson that you do is so much fun.
Miss Nolan, your Ag lessons were my favourite, but not those times when we would come to class not knowing our glossary.
Mr Morris, those Science and History lessons were always awesome. Except for the naughts and crosses, and connect four games. I would usually lose…
Miss Moore, your excitement for Math exams and home work was… refreshing. You always just could imagine my excitement over it too.
Mr Paine, ありがとうございます。Your Japanese lessons on the scheduled days were like a break from my normal classes. I hope to continue learning Japanese next year and for many years to come.
Ms Juniper, my love for books is because of you. I will miss receiving your recommended books.
Mr Wicks and Ms Machray, Chill Club is a relatively new club, it is so worth going to. The name says it all. I think you should have the pass it on game as tradition.
Mrs Swadling and Ms Norquay, thank you for being my principal and deputy principal. It has been a pleasure.
Mrs Anderssen, thank you for giving Renae and I the opportunity to be senior school captains.
Next year I will be going to Scots PGC in Warwick for my last two years of school. I hope to study and get a job after that. And live happily ever after. Only joking, unfortunately life isn’t like Disney movies. I’m sure a lot of us wish it was at times. But not Frozen, because then we would have to sing Let It Go a lot.
Thank you for listening, enjoy the rest of your day
