confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give
them back kilograms heavier, centimeters taller, months
wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they
were back then.
spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege
to watch their personality unfold day by day and
marvel at this splendid miracle of development.
I give them back reluctantly, for having spent
ten months together in the narrow confines of a
crowded classroom, we have grown close, have
become a part of each other, and we shall
always retain a little bit of each other.
We have lived, loved, laughed, played, sang,
learned, and enriched our lives together this year.
I wish it could go on indefinitely, but give them
back I must. I know you will take care of them, for they
your children and their destiny, wherever they go,
whatever they do, whoever they become. Their joys
and sorrows I’ll be honoured to share.
I shall carry special memories of them with me always.
