Although this year has finished in the most unusual manner, there is still much to celebrate. Given the volume of communication that I have recently sent out regarding the return in September, I will use this blog simply to direct you our Term 6 Newsletter which can be accessed on our website.
It contains some key piece of information about the new academic year. Please do read it carefully and get in touch with us via the normal email if you need to.
Above all, I hope that this final blog finds you safe and well. Coronavirus has caused significant global disruption to all of our lives. I hope and pray that over the next few weeks you are able to find some much needed rest and peace with your loved ones.
It has become the latest in a string of slogans we will all be quite keen to forget I am sure, but I do feel that the simple message to “Enjoy Summer Safely” is an apt one at this time.
Please do look after yourselves, those nearest to you and those directly around you who may need a kind word, an unexpected gesture of community or simply a smile.
In the coronavirus pandemic, we have all experienced something over the past few months that has, on occasion, felt incomprehensible.
There has surely never been a better time to remind us of our shared humanity and to value both our similarities and differences in a kind, compassionate and caring way.
Thank you for how you have welcomed me this year. We are absolutely not “there” yet, but I do sense that we are making progress and changing All Saints for the better every day. I am pleased for our students that they will know who their Principal will be in September and that they will not experience another change in their lives.
I remain deeply committed to leading the team here and am deeply privileged to work with so many fantastic young people.
I will finish the year with St. Paul’s words from Corinthians as a blessing for each and every one of us: May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all!
See you in September…
John Cornish, Principal
