It has been another unusual year but we have come through this and our students have developed and learnt. It has been both an honour and a privilege to work with you in moments of joy, difficulty, sadness and confusion. Thank you so much for letting me work with your students.
As we break for the holidays it’s important to look after not only the wellbeing of your children but your own wellbeing also. As the saying goes, you can’t drink from an empty cup. Wellbeing doesn’t need to take a lot of time or money, small mindful breaks can make a huge difference. A five minute break with a cup of tea/coffee, a piece of your favourite chocolate eaten mindfully, noticing all senses as you breathe slowly and deeply, a short walk, stopping to put 6 pieces in a large jigsaw puzzle, or just sitting quietly.
Be kind to yourselves these holidays and enjoy special moments with your families.
My warmest wishes to you all for the holidays, I look forward to working with staff, students and families again next year.
