Forever fourteen . . .
Today would have been Sophie da Silva's 15th birthday.
Our school is truly international. Sophie was born in Zimbabwe in 1995 and immigrated to Portugal with her parents in 2005.
She was a great kid with a big smile. In addition to being a fab student she was a daughter, sister, dancer, swimmer, sailor, Christian, animal lover, friend. . .
Sophie passed away suddenly on July 6, 2010. A tribute to Sophie's zest for life can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/group.php?gid=138548346170598&v=wall&so=30
In the black summer night sky there is a new star shining brightly over the bay of Cascais.
Rest in peace Sophie da Silva. . .
