These ‘staons’, all thoughPully displayed, are located throughout the school, and all pupils and staﬀ have spent me thinking, reﬂecng and praying, in order to ‘Experience Easter’. I thought that members of our congregaon would appreciate what the children have done, and Mrs. Kent has kindly invited us into school on Monday 15th April between 11am and noon. This will also be an opportunity to look around the school - perhaps for the ﬁrst me since it was renovated. Do go along if you can - it would be a great encouragement to the children and staﬀ, and a blessing to you. Gary
