Last night we attended Elliot’s graduation from Silcoates Junior school.
Elliot and his class mates were treated to almost two hours of reminiscing over their last 6 years within the school with some lovely montages of photographs intertwined with little stories from Mr Boyer and of course presentation of awards for the children.
Their theme for the evening was the Oscars and so they were each introduced to the hall full of parents as they individually made their entrances. It was simply wonderful to see how mature they have all become and how they are all developing into wonderful people, each with their own fabulous personalities mixed with super senses of humour.
The awards were setup as film related, so either a specific film or an actor portraying a part in a film that sits in harmony with their personality and traits that they have developed individually while at the school. Elliot was introduced as the Tin Man as he has no rust on him but has a huge heart with nothing but kindness and good things to say about everything and everybody.
We are so incredibly proud of the young man he is so quickly becoming and while we are nervous that he is about to be joining the senior school, we are super excited for him as he embarks upon this next stage of his journey.
