We have just completed the launch assembly and were thrilled and moved to have in our presence James's Mum and Dad as well as brother Matt and sister Emma. The date was chosen especially as it would have been James's 24th birthday and we thought that he would have been a great way to remember James and the great things that the students are doing to continue his legacy. All four successful applicants presented their ideas and Grace sent a little video from Rio as she is already undertaking her adventure. Thanks to Jim Noble for organising such a great event and to all participating students, parents and teachers for making it such a special occasion.
News from Grace via the Twitter feed that Grace has arrived in Rio and is underway with her orientation day before the work starts tomorrow. More soon from Rio .....
