What does Leabank mean to you?
Leabank to me is somewhere I could make friends and learn how to do things and about stuff I never knew. Leabank has prepared me for next year and encouraged me to become a better person in the future.

Leabank means being challenged with experiences, being given the opportunity to prove myself as a good Young Leader and graduate as a proud Year 6. The best thing that has helped me at Leabank is my teachers and especially my friends.
Leabank to me feels like home, making new friends and making people want to learn. It is about preparing us and keeping us on track for the future. It is about encouraging us to try!
“We were born to be real not to be perfect.”
When you start together you finish together and if you dream it you will achieve it and together you will be unstoppable. When life gets too hard to stand, kneel. Through hard work determination and perseverance you can the best we all can be the best we can! (Mykal and Iavana Seuala)
Leabank to me feels like a family because we look after each other. School may be hard annoying and irritating, but admit it, you’re going to miss it when it ENDS. Friendship in school is not something you learn, but if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship you really haven’t learnt anything.
Leabank is trying new things and not giving up.
“If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”
To me leabank means home because all my friends treat me like family.
Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. Leabank means family to me because we encourage each other.
“When life changes to be harder, Change yourself to be stronger.”
To me leabank means family and family means that no one feels left out or feels like they don’t belong here.
Leabank is like a good friend - hard to leave and impossible to forget. Leabank is inspiring to children by making them feel safe and at home.
