Sometimes you can be lost for words when saying goodbye, so seeking the words of others may be helpful if it all becomes too emotional. Here are our favourite quotes which could perfectly sum up a wonderful teaching experience.
"Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure" - Stephen King, taken from Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption
"Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world" - Roald Dahl
