GOVERNOR of NSW Professor Marie Bashir cemented a friendship that started with the simple gesture of a bracelet.
Principal of South Grafton Public School Susan Hillery took a friendship bracelet from Year 6 student Myra Cross to the Governor in November last year.
"And the Governor has just been wonderful about it," Ms Hillery said.
Ms Hillery took the bracelet to the Governor as part of the school's kindness program.
"Year 6 was making friendship bracelets and Myra decided to make one for Ms Bashir," Ms Hillery said.
"Since then the Governor has sent Myra a letter thanking her and a Christmas card."
Yesterday when Prof Bashir came to see the damage from the floods, she asked specifically to see Myra.
Myra was quietly pleased to meet her new friend, although she was not wearing her bracelet.
