Brought tears to my eyes (again)

It was that time of the year again, last week Stevens school was in the Rock Challenge, they did a sports theme. with the Olympics and football being part of it. Steven was in a 'Pompey' strip, which was quite fitting, seeing we (hopefully) have tickets for the FA Cup final at Wemberly next month.

It was lovely also seeing another one of Stevens friends also in the 'Pompey' strip (the one who had the brain tumor removed) come bouncing on the stage, as he loves Match of the Day music, that made it extra special for his parents and friends as we didn't think he would be fit enough to play a part, but to come on so happy, (normally he just walks on, like a typical teenager looking bored, lol).

We had the wheelchairs, speeding round the stage as if they were in the slalom, (their faces were a picture, you could see that they were loving every minute of it, they just loved the speed of zooming round) and another lot of students dressed up in rugby gear and doing the 'hacker' dance and chanting. It was fantastic, and at the end we had five students whirling ribbons round like the Olympic rings, the concentration on their faces as they did it, said it all. I cried all the way through, and even remembering it now, brings tears to my eyes.

We came away with 2 awards this year, which was yet another fantastic achievement, well done to all the staff and students who took part, and a big...

...Thank you for making it a fantastic evening.
