This Week's News!Back
It is with sadness that I write the newsletter this week, at the beginning of our new academic year. For most of us, Queen Elizabeth II is the only monarch we have known. She was a true leader, who served her country with humility and grace and always held strong to her faith - a life lived well, with a mix of beauty and devotion. She was royal but servant hearted. We hold her family in our thoughts and prayers today as they mourn the loss of a mother, grandmother, great grandmother. Even though we may not have known Queen Elizabeth personally, it can still touch our lives and trigger other grief to be experienced again. Please be kind to each other in the coming days and weeks as this news is processed.
As we reflect in the coming days, we will be living out our termly value of RESPECT for the dedication of this long reigning Queen. Today we have gathered to reflect on Queen Elizabeth’s death and joined others in the community in a moment of stillness as the bells at Holy Trinity Church were tolled. Throughout the day the children have continued to be engaged in learning. The Holy Trinity Church (next door to school) will be open all day and after school today (Friday), for those who wish to spend some time in quiet reflection.
Welcome to our new team members. Mrs Young in Year 5 who is working with Miss Bush and Mrs Norman in Year 1 working with Mr Wainer. I know you will make them very welcome.
Over the holiday some premises improvements have been made. We are delighted with the new canopy on Beech building, the improvements to the upper playground, the tree and hedge works. The biggest project was the transformation of the very dated toilet facilities in the Log Cabin. I know it has had a huge impact already.
