Dear Parents and Carers of St Francis’,  

We are living in unprecedented times brought about by this global pandemic.

During uncertain times we usually come together in our local and church communities however this pandemic has meant that we have been more isolated. However, we are never alone and we have all found new ways to make sure that we still in touch with each other.

I want to assure you that during these uncertain times, we are committed to providing you and your child with the highest standard of education so that each child can achieve their full potential. The greatest gift we can give our child is confidence is their ability to overcome adversity. We value the partnership between home, school and church and will be working hard to strengthen it. It is a privilege to work with all our families and to lead a school of such dedicated staff.

We must pray for our school, teachers, pupils and parents. We must pray for each other and place all our faith and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and in his love for each of us.

When this is over,
may we never again
take for granted
A handshake with a stranger
Full shelves at the store
Conversations with neighbours
A crowded theatre
Friday night out
The taste of communion
A routine checkup
The school rush each morning
Coffee with a friend
The stadium roaring
Each deep breath
A boring Tuesday
Life itself.

When this ends
may we find
that we have become
more like the people
we wanted to be
we were called to be
we hoped to be
and may we stay
that way — better
for each other
because of the worst.
