Everyone in the school community, joined by members of Kyle's family and over 20 of his school friends, paid tribute in late July to Kyle and celebrated 10 years of the charity. 

Despite some of the many July showers, the sun came out briefly and nearly 1000 people gathered outside. Cockburn's newly appointed Student Ambassadors stood in the shape of the number 10. 

On the stage, there were readings from the newly elected Head Girl and Head Boy and a performance by the combined school and community choir who sang 'True Colours' beautifully.

Words from senior members of staff and trustees of the charity were then followed by everyone counting from 1 to 10 before fireworks marked the moment. Red and white smoke honoured Kyle's love of Arsenal FC.

Kyle's mum, Tracey, sent the following message to the staff and students of the school following the event: "Thank you so much for today - truly an amazing but emotional afternoon. The school has helped us so much in many ways and your support is phenomenal. Thank you for everything you do to keep Kyle’s memory in everyone’s hearts."

Kyle's friends, many of whom had not been back to school for 9 years, were given a tour of the school which brought back many fond memories.
