Celebrating Retirement

Today on Friday the 12th of November 2010 we had a celebration for one truly amazing lady. This lady taught grade 3 at our local primary school for 24 years. My sister and I both went to this school and were in her grade 3 class and my mum has been working there for the past 15 years. Today was named 'Del Day' (her name) and it was a celebration of her love and commitment to teaching and to our school. She is one of those special teachers who touches the lives of everyone around her and will stay in every ones hearts and memories forever. Her love, discipline, knowledge and passion shone so brightly and was a huge impact on the many children she taught over the years.

This was evident at today's celebration where 1 or two students from every year she taught was there representing their class and to show their thanks and appreciation to such an incredible teacher and friend. The celebration was held in the auditorium and it was covered in hearts. On these hearts the current students of the school all decorated and wrote a special message for Del. These will be a beautiful keepsake from the day!

The ceremony was kicked off with my amazing sister singing! She is so unbelievably talented and blows me away every time she sings!!!! She sung this song for Del and there was not a dry eye in the house when she finished!

(sorry about my talking throughout)

~ A beautiful day for a beautiful lady - teacher - friend ~
Congratulations on your retirement!
I wish you every happiness and all the love in this world as you start your new journey
