Here’s a letter from a Little Buddy with a big heart.

Michael encourages Big Buddy, Ying, to “always believe in yourself”.

“Dear Ying,

Thank you for your wonderful card, I loved your cool decorations. I can not wait to see you again in Term 4. Michael Jordan used to be my favourite but now I like Kevin Durrant because he is the best basketball player now in 2017 and he is in Warriors.

Wow sounds like a hard job but I know and believe that you can do it. Because you’re very smart. Always believe in yourself and never give up.

I go camping twice a year and it is really fun because you get to relax and have time to do anything you want. Thanks for saying I’m good at outdoors activities and I really think you are good at outdoor activities too.

As pizza needs to be very healthy we added tomatoes, cheese, ham, mushrooms, pizza paste and other healthy ingredients. But I forgot most of it.

I am having my confirmation on the 20th of October.

At athletics I came first in the 200 metre sprint and athletics was very fun.

I can’t wait to see you again in Term 4 at your workplace.

From Michael”
