What a wonderful start to my birthday weekend, a lovely series of surprises from staff and from the students made it a perfect day. Thank you to everyone involved.
As we approach the festive time of the year I reminded the children today that this period is about giving and not receiving and about joining with family whether you celebrate Christ's birthday or simply enjoy the festive fun. As a former foster carer I know that many children will not be with family this Christmas and some elderly people will spend it alone.
My request for this holiday is to ask you to reach out to someone in need, a phone call, a cup of coffee, a lunch or dinner together can make a world of difference.
Enjoy the festive break. Happy Christmas to everyone and a Very Happy New Year
