Tonight Mum and Dad and Alison joined us at the boys school's Celebration Evening. We knew it was going to be a big night with Jalen being in grade 6 and therefore being one of the school leavers this year. Because we were grade six parents and also were presenting a special award, we were lucky to have seats in the second row which Kobe was pretty excited about.
I took Noah every year to Child Studies to talk to them about disabilties and Noah's condition. When he mentioned it to me, I told him I had been thinking the same thing, so we decided to donate a prize to each school.
A lot of the time kids are recognised because of their academic or
sporting achievements, so we really wanted to make Noah's award
different. We wanted it to a child who was particularly kind and compassionate to others as there were many kids at the school who stood out to us as being extra kind to Noah. Tonight I presented the first ever 'Noah King Friendship Award' to a girl in grade three called Meg. I don't know her at all, but all the teachers have been telling me how beautiful she is and how deserving she is of it which is so nice to hear.
