I am delighted to report that this is almost completely healed. Its amazing how quickly his young skin has grown again.
The worst burn was on his thumb, and even this is almost healed too.

There was a short ceremony where the teacher (Jessie) handed out certificates and read a short item about each child. One thing they had been asked was what they wanted to be when they grew up, this demonstrated a clear gender divide. The girls wanted to be Dentist, Vet, Engineer, and mommy (although there was one aspiring RockStar!). They boys? Well, construction worker, police officer, scuba diver and snowboarder (our boy).
After the ceremony there was a party for the children and parents, assorted grandparents etc with pizza and cake, and goody bags for the graduates.
We took both boys out for a celebratory dinner that evening. We tried out what looks a fairly uninteresting restaurant next to Wholefoods, to discover that it was actually rather fancy. The boys stepped up to the occasion.
