Message from the Headteacher
at the end of the Lent Term
“Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you”
(Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel 164)
Easter is very nearly upon us and I am sure all our pupils, staff and families are looking forward to a well deserved holiday.
In our school Passion Play, pupils in Years 4 and 5 performed a beautiful and moving re-enactment of our Lord's Passion and the events of Calvary. Holy Week is of course a sombre time but the wisdom of the cross invites us to see another side, a different dimension - the glory and the joy of the cross. For it is only through Jesus' decision to embrace the cross, that the depth of God's love and mercy for us are fully revealed.
As St John, the great apostle of love said
"This is how we know what love is:
Jesus Christ laid down his life for us" (1 John 3:16)
I hope that you and your family will find some time for quiet contemplation and prayer during Holy Week, to gaze upon Christ crucified, so that you may enter more deeply into the mystery of God's love for us.
When we return after the holidays, we will be able to celebrate Easter in school immediately after the feast itself. as a way of proclaiming the goodness, grace and blessing of the Resurrection, we are providing each child with an "Eastertide Calendar" which I hope you will display in your home. The calendar is full of quotes, thoughts and ideas to help you and your family reflect on and proclaim the Good News of the Resurrection. May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the school and wish you and your family a very happy and blessed Easter when it comes. I look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday 23rd April for the Pentecost Term.
