Our beautiful Noak...
Please come back and visit this page as we continue to celebrate the life of Noak.
Over the past days and weeks - since the death of Noak - we have all been reflecting on his life and the many ways that he has impacted on each and every one of us.
Noak touched the lives of so many in his short life; the impact has been truly immense!
In the words of his friends...
Because I knew you.
You will be with me always like a handprint on my heart,
So much of me is made of what I have learnt from you.
Because I knew you I learnt to always put others first,
like the time you gave up your share of food to make sure I had enough.
Because I knew you I learnt that a smile can change someone's day,
when you smiled you made everyone smile with you.
Because I knew you I learnt that being gentle can be our greatest strength,
you could help and comfort just by being you.
Because I knew you I learnt to appreciate the simple things in life,
like pizza toppings, 'Red Velvet' cake and the green off a watermelon.
Because I knew you I learnt the value of being part of a team,
encouraging others to achieve their best.
Because I knew you I learnt the value of learning,
always wanting to know more and soaking knowledge up like a sponge.
Because I knew you I learnt to look after nature,
feeding chickens and loving sloths, frogs, red pandas and woolly mammoths.
Because I knew you I learnt the importance of manners,
always being respectful, polite, caring and kind.
Because I knew you I learnt to have the courage of a lion,
you showed belief in me when I needed reassurance.
Because I knew you I learnt that laughter is the best medicine,
you could turn anything into a joke.
You'll be with me always like a handprint on my heart,
so much of me is made of what you taught me.
I know I am who I am today,
BECAUSE I KNEW YOU!
Some of the words used to describe Noak include...
With his beautiful smile, Noak lit up the room as soon as he entered. With a twinkle in his eye, he shared jokes with others and was often the first to understand the humour in the jokes shared by his friends.
At Chester Blue Coat, our School Vision is 'Doing Everything in Love'; Noak was a shining example of this: he demonstrated it through all that he did.
At the Celebration of Noak's life, the family have requested no flowers. However, a donation if desired in aid of Friends of Chester Blue Coat CE Primary School, Shelter and Friends of the Earth UK would be gratefully received (details below).
Friends of the Earth, UK, as Noak was passionate about the protection of the planet.
Shelter, as Noak was unhappy with the injustice of people not having a home.
Noak absolutely loved the outdoors and was really happy in Forest School sessions at school. Donations to support the development of Forest School can be made to the Friends of Chester Blue Coat.
