We just wanted to say, as a staff, we hope you and your families have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Christmas, I feel, is always a great time for reflection on how lucky we are. We have warm houses, with full bellies and plenty of friends and family to keep us company. We know everyone in the world, and closer to home, is not as fortunate as this, and our hearts and blessings go out to those who have either felt lonely or have suffered through the winter.
It is a good time then to say a huge thank you for our teacher gifts that we received before the Christmas holidays, they were not expected at all, and we are grateful!
We hope that you all feel rested and ready for a new term, for a new year. I have a feeling that 2019 is going to be okay – the weather on New Year’s Day told me all I needed to know!
