Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Winter has definitely arrived with a vengeance. My house which admittedly is quite high in altitude is still well and truly surrounded by snow.
We have just passed the winter solstice (the shortest day) and as the optimists among us will note, things will only get brighter from here on.
This is a very long term, eleven weeks, and it is important to keep a close watch on your child’s health as they begin to run out of energy, as the term winds down. If they are coughing or sneezing then please keep them home so as not to spread the ‘bugs’.
Last week I had the pleasure of listening to a number of speeches from our Year 6,7 and 8 pupils. They were all very good, and I was proud of the time and effort that they had put in. Verbal communication and the ability to be able to do this fluently is an important skill. Our senior pupils have shown that they possess this skill to a large degree and I look forward to seeing them present their speeches later in the week at Outram School.
Have a great week
