Good Afternoon,
My first thought is for all your well being, mental and physical, and I hope you are getting through this as best as possible and that you feel as supported by us as we do by you. Lots of parents are contacting us for various bits of information and we want you to know that the school office is open Monday to Friday with people ready to offer advice.
Some parents are concerned that too many emails are coming through from staff saying work is not getting done. Please, if you feel this to be the case, do what you can with your child at home and just let the staff member know that you as a family are doing as much as you can. We are all trying to be working fulltime, educators and anchors for our families at this time: we cannot do everything, instead we do what we can in these circumstances.
Tomorrow, the Easter holidays begin, now I know these are unusual circumstances and I dare say we all had plans which have had to be changed but after a busy term for all of us, there won't be an expectation for staff or students to produce work.  This lockdown will hopefully bring about family board games, The Sound of Music on the television and the odd game of charades. The lockdown is making us realise how important the people around us matter and this epitomises Easter. Recognising the value of each other and taking no day for granted.
On behalf of everyone at school, and possibly more this year than ever, have a peaceful and blessed Easter.
In the words of Pope Francis: ' We proclaim the resurrection of Christ when his light illuminates the dark moments of our existence'
