My young man - centre
... my sweet young man, you make me, your Mum, so proud. Out of 160 young Year 7 men, you were one of 9 recognised for 'outstanding scholastic achievement' yesterday morning on 'Headmaster's Assembly'. I am so proud of the wonderful effort you are putting in to your school work, your passion for every assignment you are given, your time management skills and the responsibility you are showing in everything you do. I had buckets of tears of love and pride behind my eyelids yesterday morning, but I shed just one as I will save the rest for the many more moments of heart bursting pride you have in store for me. Thank you for openly appreciating all I do for you, your hugs and kindness..... and for giving back so much.
P.S. I am sorry for not sewing your blazer sleeves up, making you roll them up instead. You know your Mum has other talents than sewing.... and photography is also not one of them.
Son and Headmaster
N.B. Tears actually flowed when 1000 young men burst into song and sang "Morning Has Broken" - singing in assembly .... gets me every time... killer!
