Mother and father were acutely aware of their daughter's sad feelings, leaving a wonderful school where she had spent many years of happiness and to which she felt such a sense of belonging and pride. They were also aware of the deep and meaningful friendships that their daughter had formed at the school and on which they knew she would always be able to depend. The parents commissioned a promise box for their daughter to mark this important rite of passage.
The promise box, received on her special birthday, gave the daughter the perfect vehicle for catharsis. She was able to express all her feelings in the design of her memory box, made shortly after.
