When she last visited Chelsea brought with her a large bag of pencils for the school. These were not just any pencils however. These were all special pencils, collected by Chelsea during her childhood. The collection was so impressive it even went on public display in her home town. The pencils are a riot of different colours and patterns; one contains it’s own little rock collection, another shows the solar system, some sparkle, others inform, some make you laugh. These are exciting pencils.
We have been handing them out gradually over time, for special treats or events. When it is time for a child to receive one of the special pencils they get to choose for themselves which one they will take (which always takes a while!) I very much doubt that Chelsea could ever have imagined that her passion for collecting pencils as a child would live on to give so much pleasure to other children, half a world away, in the future. Thank you Chelsea for brightening up so many of the days at our school with this little bit of treasure.
