Assembly 3 4 2020
Good morning. It’s the 3rd of April, last day of term and 3 weeks since the school closed.
I don’t expect that many of you will be reading this….I hope you are having a well-deserved sleep in!
Take the next two weeks to rest-up and to reconnect. You need it. Be kind to yourself and you will find it is easier to be kind to each other.
The work, whatever it is, will get done. Give it a break. Use this time off to put things into perspective. Life becomes very narrow when you are looking at it through a laptop!
There is a time for everything. The last three weeks have been a time for action.
Now it is time for rest.
A few announcements….
1) Teachers have made their own arrangements to work with exam classes over the Easter. Also some reports and briefs have to be completed for the exams. The Minister of Education has stated that the exams are going ahead, ‘by hook or by crook’. Exam classes should therefore continue to prepare as normal for June exams unless informed otherwise.
2) School lunch packets, sourced and packed by Dial a Chef, should arrive by post in the coming days. Please give us your feedback.
3) School will recommence on Monday the 20th of April.
In the meantime, mind yourselves and make the most of your Easter break.
I leave the final word to Ms Keenan who will lead us in our daily reflection
As we come to the conclusion of a very strange term
we ask God’s blessing and protection on our school
community, our families and the whole world.
As uncertain as things may seem at the moment, this
too will pass and some semblance of normality will
return to our lives
So let us all enjoy the Easter break, stay safe, so we will
return refreshed and ready to confront whatever may await us.
Remember- if we are worrying about tomorrow, we
cannot enjoy today. We miss today’s blessings.
It’s ok to plan for tomorrow but we have to live in the moment
