you're very very special,

but I want to see you grow up independent, assertive,

 and never give your parents a minute of peace.

The secret
of contentment,

Is being happy
with what
you have


Listen to your

Jane, Erroyl

Always take responsibility for  what you are as a person. Never allow
yourself to be defined through the actions of other people, circumstance or situation.

Sometime in life you can spend years building up something that can be taken away from you quickly. Identify what was important to you and rebuild that again regardless of how long it will take or how hard it may seem to be. When you are doing, things get easier.

If ever there is anything you are worried about doing - then do it.

We are always happy to help if you ever need it - just ask.

Kathryn, Darren,
Mathew &Ben Randle

People who
disparage you
for winning

May lifes richest joys and blessings be yours
May you grow in health
of body and mind
to full adulthood,
and may it be your good
fortune to play some worthy part in making life
more pleasant for those
whose paths you cross

Failure is never final
and success is
never ending,
Success is a journey
not a destination

do something and fail
are infinitely better off

and succeed

Uno bimbo e appena nato
Me lo ha detto una stello
E vengo con  le mie goccio ti cristallo
E le mie cadenze e dergli la prima lezione poteica
Ad insegnargli l-incanto  deiverdi pascoli persi
Nel fondo delle cantane montuosa
Corno la sua testa Con i miei fiori di suo no
E la mia lingua pi rame calmo le sue pene
A little boy is just born
I was told by a star
I come with my drop of crystal
And my rhythm to give him his first poetic lesson
To teach him the enchantment of
the unspoiled green pastures
At the depth of the mountain range
I crown him my flowers
And calm his fears wit a tongue of copper

Moster Lisa & Unkle Graeme
May all your wishes come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung
And may you stay forever young

May you grow to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the light that's surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy
And may your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of change shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay forever young

Your friends are really important, choose them well.

Remember that you need them more than they need you, so always make sure you look out for them so that they are OK otherwise they might get lost.

The more you give them, the more they will give back to you.

Friendships are living things, if they are not encouraged and nurtured they can die - always take time to maintain your friendships.


Tis better to aim
for the stars
and hit a fence post

Than aim for the fence post and hit the ground

Ken & Margaret Leppien

Never grow up too fast,
savor every moment and realise life is
full of lessons.

Auntie Katie

Treat others
as you wish to be treated yourself
