236: One New Star in Heaven

Our little school is having a really tough day. We only have a little over a hundred students in grades pre-school through 12th, so we are really a pretty small family. We suffered a loss today. The director of our school, the person who in the US would be called our principal, passed away today from cancer – she had been fighting it for just over a year.

Of course the students and parents are sad and upset. Our University counselors are here today to help where they can. She was instrumental in bringing the school together, breaking down barriers that had been built previous to her arrival and making us into one family – at least as much as a group of people can be a family. She will be missed.
