I am missing being present with our fantastic students, but here at my desk at home I can send words of encouragement by email. I also send out our ‘Thought for the Day’ presentation every day, with a positive act to keep us inspired, some verses from the Bible and a prayer for our students, families and community. Our progress leaders send out a collective worship presentation to their year groups each week, as well as words of wisdom, riddles, challenges and lots of other ways to help us feel together in spirit. And of course we have our Simply the Best bulletin to share our excellent learning.
St Paul did sometimes get an occasional visit to his churches - and as staff we are taking turns to go in to teach the students still coming in to school - and one thing that has struck me is just how beautiful our school and its grounds are. Here are some photos of the beautiful flowers blooming at school and the outdoor artwork created by the girls here in school. St Martin's may look and feel a bit unusual at this time, but we are united in spirit, under God’s care, and we are still growing in love and learning every day.
May God bless and keep you, today and always,
