The end of the World Cup is a moment to remember.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24

‘So,’ said my 10-year-old, ‘that was the World Cup.’
‘Fantastic, hey?’ said his dad.
We sat a little dazed, but feeling happy that we had witnessed something amazing that we would never forget.
It made me realise the importance of a closing ceremony. Whether it’s a matric dance, a netball prize-giving or the last bows at the concert, we have a need to make a formal goodbye.
So here are some stories about landmarks and moments and saying goodbye.
