During the month of November, we take time to remember loved ones who have passed on. Students came together to decorate the branches of a tree in memory of our dearly departed family members and friends. Butterflies in different shades and colours decorate the branches of this tree. It has been said that 'the butterfly is nature's way of reminding us that there is hope in grief. When the caterpillar is no more, the butterfly exists in ultimate freedom and beauty'. Two red breasted robins have been placed at the top of the tree to help us always remember that our loved ones are never too far away. Staff, students and parents are most welcome to write the names of their departed loves in our Book of Remembrance over the next few weeks.
