It's beautiful and inviting and sweet. Just like Annabelle.
The community of Miles Franklin Primary School at Evatt came together on Friday to celebrate one of their beloved students, Annabelle Potts.
The effervescent five-year-old died in January after battling a highly-aggressive brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
Her family and the school community had hoped, instead, she would be preparing for kindergarten after attending - and loving - preschool. But it was not to be.
Principal Chris Jones said it took some time for the school community to process the loss of Annabelle. But it always knew it wanted to put something in place to remember her.
So instead of a plaque or a tree, they went for something different. A gorgeous cubby house in which the children can play in the spirit of Annabelle, with a lot of heart and soul.
"Annabelle loved being at school. She came with a lot of joy and wonderment," Mr Jones said.
"She was the kind of child who soaked up every opportunity. "
Annabelle was three when she was diagnosed with the highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour within her brainstem.
"Like all children at the school, she meant the world to us," Mr Jones said.
"It was very hard watching such a beautiful, giving little girl start to weaken. Not in spirit, but in her body.."
Mr Jones said the community wanted to create something in honour of Annabelle that would be enjoyed by the students and by her own family and siblings.
"It was wonderful to see the smiles on the children's faces," he said.
Kathie and Adam Potts and children William, 4, and Juliette, 1, were at the opening of Annabelle's Place on Friday. The couple is also preparing for the imminent birth of their fourth child.
Kathie said one of the most special moments was to see a river of white rocks that led to the cubby house.
"Annabelle absolutely loved rocks, even though she was the girliest of girls," she said.
Each student had painted a rock a bright colour and as part of Friday's ceremony reverently placed the coloured rocks among the white ones. The kindergarten class, which Annabelle would have been in, also added sparkle to their rocks, another nod to their sparkly lost playmate.
The family - and supporters around the world - had painted rocks for what would have been Annabelle's sixth birthday on June 10 and left them around their community.
Kathie said Friday's ceremony was very special for the family.
"I thought I was going to be OK but when the kids got up to put the rocks down, that's when I was sobbing," she said.
"The kids were so beautiful and so respectful. It was so calm and so quiet. Some of the kids were a bit teary as well and I was really touched by that."
Kathie said her daughter would have loved Annabelle's Place.
"She was such a selfless kid. I don't think she would have cared she wouldn't get a chance to play in it . She would just be happy other kids were getting joy from it," she said.
