It is great to see everyone back after the Easter Break. We have a very busy and exciting term ahead. A copy of the newsletter has been issued to all families and can be accessed on the school website if you lose your copy!
I was delighted to receive a text yesterday from Fr. Fredrick in Namulenga Malawi saying that he had received the donation of £1100 from our Charities Account. The money will be used for desks for the Girls’ School and supporting the community in rebuilding following the floods. He was very appreciative and extends his thanks and prayers to all our children and families. This term we will be preparing for the visit of Mr Lamosi (Head Teacher) and Mr Wales (Class Teacher) from our partner school in Malawi. The visit has been scheduled for late August, I am sure we will be able to give them a very warm welcome. Hopefully we can arrange a Scottish themed evening event for parents and families to attend. More details will be issued shortly.
We are currently in the process of redoing our infant area. It has new flooring and Mr Murphy has done a great job painting the entire area. We have ordered a variety of new resources and storage. It is hoped the new area will be ready in the next few weeks for lots of fun and active learning.
We have lots to look forward to this term with 1st Holy Communion, P7 visits to OLHS, summer outings, sports events, assemblies and a very important retirement Mass for Mrs Taylor. Mrs Taylor has worked in St Bernadette’s for almost 41 years – what an outstanding achievement which demonstrates a true commitment to the community of St Bernadette’s!
