We have all had a lovely day celebrating our own unique culture. Its been lovely to see all the children looking so bright and colourful. This day is also a celebration of our whole school book that we have been studying “Here we Are” by Oliver Jeffers which is about us all appreciating the world around us especially now in these difficult times. It is also a time to appreciate ourselves and our own uniqueness, our self portraits are all up in the gallery
Its been an interesting first term at school with the children in bubbles, the staggered breaks and lunch and of course the different pick up times. I can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given us- you have all followed the new routines, collected your children on time, worn masks in the playground, let us know if your child is displaying symptoms of Covid, been happy to have parent consultations on the phone rather than face to face and accepted all of our changes without a grumble. I am so touched by your support- its been hard with no real sign of respite in sight. But we’ve got this, all of us together to keep your children and ourselves safe with some semblance of normality!
I am also so proud of my staff, everyone has just got on with the job and tried to make the whole school experience as purposeful and inspiring as we can. They have been there for the children and for each other. Its been one heck of a challenge but well done to each and everyone in the school community. Come on St Michael’s!
Have a lovely half term, a good rest, stay safe and above all- be kind!
