Well this last week has been a very uplifting week for our daughter
She has been working on getting her Grade 12 ..
and I mean a graduated Grade 12,
ceremony and all.
Well she learned at the beginning of the week that her teachers had put her name in for
Recognition for Academic Achievement
a bursary set up by Reg McNamara
(a teacher that passed away a few years ago with cancer.....)
she knew nothing about it....till they phoned her .
She was more honored more then words can say ....that these teachers saw and watched her
and honored her enough to do this.
We are very proud of her ..she has worked hard to get here.
