PROUD parents watched on as their children were presented with graduation certificates on Wednesday to mark the end of their preschool years at Community Kids Urangan.

About 30 students donned black caps and gowns for the special event.

"We feel it is important to celebrate the accomplishments of our kindy children that are graduating," said centre director Patty Hoodles.

"We feel satisfied as educators, knowing we have done all we can to give these children the best start to their transition into primary school."

She said end-of-year celebrations provided the opportunity for friends and family to get together before the school holidays to exchange stories and celebrate the festive season.

"Families love to attend this event. It is a proud moment to see their little one receive their certificate and begin a new chapter in their lives."

Thousands of Fraser Coast students will celebrate the last day of school on Friday, before returning to the classrooom on Tuesday, January 29.
