This is what it’s about
I love the boys’ school. When you walk into the school offices, there’s a big frame with a photo of every single child in the school. At the bottom it says “Where every child counts”.
The school lives by that. It’s not just words.
There’s a little boy that used to be in the school with the boys in Grade R – Grade 2. His mom now homeschools him. He is just a little bit slow and battles to adjust to school.
Even though he is not in school, he practises rugby with the boys. He isn’t near on the same level as they are but he is there every afternoon and he is included in everything they do.
Today when I got to the rugby match, I saw him wearing a reserve rugby jersey. Oh word, I wish I could capture that moment. The pride on his face.
No, I can’t see them actually playing him in a game BUT he is there. He is on the bench. He gets acknowledged. He brings them the water and oranges. He gets included in the team.
This means SO much to a little boy who is not in their school. A little boy who is now a part of a team.
I’m so proud to be a parent of this school.
