Friends for Life

Children have a great capacity to form meaningful relationships. 
What draws certain children together, some from the moment they meet?
It can begin with a physical attraction and a sense of familiarity. 
Over time the act of sharing common experience on a daily basis solidifies the bond.
Although the memory of these friends fades with time, the lessons they learned continues:
To trust in others.
To be kind.
To share.
To be joyful.
To be mindful.
To do good for the betterment of everyone in the group.
This year we bid farewell to many of our students and they bid farewell to many of the friends who shared their five year journey.
This young girl left a tribute to two of her dearest friends.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Irish Proverb
