Guess How Much We All Miss You!

Letter from Mr Cadogan

22 May 2020

Dear Parents, Guardians and Pupils,

I hope that everyone is safe and well as we head into another weekend. Everyone has played their part in helping suppress the virus but we must continue to be careful. I was delighted to see some boys from the school during the week and have a brief chat with them (from a distance). With an increase in traffic levels boys need to be careful regarding road safety and when cycling remember to wear your helmet.

Thanks to Fr. John for a lovely service he conducted last Saturday using webcam for the boys in our Second Classes who should have been receiving their First Communion. Thank you to Hayden, A.J., Harry and Oscar who read the prayers. There has been no update regarding the sacraments from the diocese, but as soon as we have any news we will let you know.

If we were in school, next week would be our Health and Wellness week, which would see us engaged in a variety of activities promoting physical and mental health – both important issues in these challenging times. Our Health and Wellbeing team have put a variety of daily resources together [LINK] that you can work through during the week. Included also is a very useful journal “At Home With Weaving Well-being” that boys can engage with. There is also a section for Parents that you might find useful. Thank you to the Health and Wellbeing team for their work putting the programme together.

Thank you to our 6th Class parents and pupils who have emailed back the information for the Educational Passport. It would be great to get the remaining forms returned at your convenience.

Well done to the boys (and their parents) who continue to do the work set by the teachers and also those who email in samples of their work, projects, news etc. We are delighted to hear from you. Keep up the good work.

Thank you to everyone in our school community for their ongoing work, assistance, support and co-operation in these challenging times. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend but remember to stay safe and stay well at all times.

Yours sincerely,

Neil Cadogan
