More students than ever are completing their primary school at Prescott Primary Northern (PPN), a Seventh-day Adventist school in the north-east suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.
PPN, the largest primary-only Adventist school in Australia, has grown significantly over the past decade, culminating in 67 students completing Year 6 this year.
“Finishing Year 6 is a big deal for these students,” said school principal Mark Borresen. “We are so proud of who each one of them has become.”
“It’s also exciting for us to reflect on the journey the school has been on. We now have three classes of every grade from Foundation to Year 6. At PPN, we are blessed to now have the opportunity to share Jesus with almost 500 kids and their families.”
The record graduation comes on the eve of the school’s 50th anniversary—a milestone they plan to celebrate alongside former staff and students in February 2024.
“Growing from a small three-teacher school to a community numbering in the 1000s doesn’t happen without the tireless efforts of a lot of people, and the guiding hand of God. We look forward to celebrating both of these things at our 50th celebration next year,” said Mr Borresen.
