We understand that many people may be weighed down by the serious tone of the government broadcasts and the extent of the COVID-19 impact.

Therefore, we thought it would be a good idea to have a ‘Blessings’ page.

Although it is easy to focus on the negative or hone in on people’s worries and fears, we felt it would be nice to celebrate some of the simple but important activities or events that have taken place during this time, that you otherwise might not have done, or that you appreciate more, e.g. cleared your garage, played monopoly, shared a meal together, got to the bottom of the washing basket, talked to a neighbour over the fence and checked hey are alright (from a safe distance), got the playdough out, baked a cake etc.

Each of these small actions is a prayer in itself and shows ‘We keep calm and carry on’.

If you would like to share a smidgen of positivity, no matter how banal or seemingly insignificant, email the school on;

with the subject ‘Blessings’ – no need to write a message. You could simply write;

‘We made a kite and tried to fly it in the garden’ and hit send!

We will endeavour to create an anonymous positivity list on this our ‘Blessings’ page.
