I hope that you are all well and keeping safe. I would just like to say a huge well done to all of our school community for the tremendous effort that has taken place in order to sustain our school life, education and ethos, during these incredible challenging and unpredictable times.
The co-work of teachers and parents in the remote education of our pupils has been phenomenal – we feel so proud of all of the families, children and staff who have demonstrated exceptional levels of resilience and commitment over the course of the last few months. We would like to thank everyone for their kindness, patience and understanding during recent weeks, which has really helped our school community to flourish regardless of distancing measures, remote learning and other significant changes to our everyday routines.
In light of this, I would like to share a short reflection with you all…
Lately, our school patronal feast day took place on Sunday 28th June. In the same way as St. Peter, we have considered how we can continue to follow God’s calling by ‘using the gifts God gave us to make our world a better place’. In particular, the children have demonstrated their awareness of the sacrifices made by St. Peter and the loyalty he had demonstrated as a follower of Jesus. Please take a look at the following Art and Religious Education activities that some of our pupils have completed as part of their home learning.
What a fantastic selection of our school logo, stained glass window paintings and models of the keys to Heaven! We hope that you all have a peaceful and restful summer holidays, with opportunities for moments of prayer, calm and quiet reflection. We send all of our prayers to those who have been affected by the Coronavirus around the world, may we continue show our support and appreciation to all key workers and those on the NHS front line who are working so hard to tackle the virus and nurse those who are suffering back to good health. I would like to end this month’s blog post with a short prayer:
We entrust to your unfailing
and tender care this night
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger threatens
your everlasting arms are there to hold us safe.
Comfort and heal them,
and restore them to health and strength;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Please continue to access the Sunday Liturgy resources that are posted each week on the Headteacher’s blog. We look forward to seeing you all in September and hope that you have a safe and enjoyable summer holidays and feel ready and refreshed for the new term.
