Bailey Collins has overcome meningitis and the deafness it caused.
The youngster, who has already done a P1 year at Clandeboye Primary, is now packing up for his first day back as he re-starts the year at a new school.
But his story so far in life has been quite miraculous - and Bailey's family know getting him to hospital quickly most likely saved his life.
The little boy couldn't hear or speak during his illness but that has all changed and his loved ones are both amazed and delighted by his progress.
He now has cochlear implants to help with his hearing - just one of the reminders of his near-death battle with meningitis last year.
After another trip to hospital and a six-hour operation, Bailey got his implants fitted. But it took months after that until he could hear properly.
His proud grandmother Fiona Collins told UTV: "It wasn't, obviously, until Bailey came home from hospital that we found out that there seemed to be a problem with his hearing.
"After doing quite extensive tests, it revealed that he was profoundly deaf, the side effects of this strain of meningitis that he had."
The five-year-old's other doting grandmum Karen Close added: "Bailey was very frustrated because he couldn't cope with not hearing and he lashed out a lot."
Fiona added: "We are absolutely blown away by his progress.
"To think just how ill he was and whenever he came out of hospital he could hardly walk so it was just unbelievable progress.
"It's like a miracle to us, it really is - after being so dreadfully ill now he is just like a normal wee boy."
These days, Bailey is content with going to school, playing with his family and pretending to be farmer.
