After spending most of first term recovering from Knee Replacement Surgery, I was very fortunate to experience the support of our wonderful community.
The parents of Class 3, 6 and 12 in particular, provided meals and supported my children in getting to and from school over that lengthy period.
It was difficult for me to ask for help in the beginning, but the encouragement and offers continued throughout.
Class co-ordinators Emma, Jenny, Sharon, Sandi and Rachel Holt were wonderfully organised on my behalf and regularly checked on my progress and needs. Thank you to ALL the meal-givers and a special thank you to Denis of Year 12 for his weekly gift of Chicken Curry!
In addition, Ebony and Suzanne of Class 3, Tanya, (P&F) and Suzanne and Jane of Year 12, assisted in my daily personal care, shared my challenges and encouraged me to get back on my feet. It was a big commitment and these wonderful ladies brought so much love into what was a frightening and painful time for me.
Thank you to the class teachers, guardians and Katie Biggin for supporting me and my children and for keeping me in touch with what was happening at school.
Thank you also to Muriel for the loan of the exercise bike and the management staff at Cape Byron for their incredible support along the way.
I have been overwhelmed by the love and kindness shown and given.
We, the parents and friends of Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School, are very blessed to have such a caring and vibrant community. The experience has certainly confirmed that it is not only our children who are the lucky ones.
With love,
Lisa Larkins
