Today we said a very tearful farewell to Mr Schaab, the school caretaker at Silverstream. Not only has he been an outstanding caretaker and always ready to help each and every child, he gave up his own lunch time to teach the students guitar and Ukulele. Even getting grants from the Cossie club to buy the school extra instruments. Without him, we would have never discovered Josh's talent. Josh was understandable very upset to see him move down to Timaru. The school gave a full assembly for him and many parents attended to show our support, even with a standing ovation at the end! The different clubs all performed for him showing off his talents and Josh, Logan and Dylan were asked to give him the present from the school and PTA. The teachers also sung a song about him to the Simon and Garfunkel tune El Condor Pasa, which was awesome!
Here are some stills from the assembly.
