Mr Wilding's words Lent week 9
Our return to school this week has been blessed with 2 lovely days of weather to start with, permitting the boys to truly celebrate their freedom from #lockdown by total conversation. “Sir, I’ve only had my family to speak to for all this year - how do I stop my jaw moving?!”
I should have filmed our murmuration of boys and girls around bus time at the end of the day, perhaps the best example of our ‘hubbub’ back up and running. We’ve missed these sights and sounds of childhood dreadfully!
Parents, please accept our grateful thanks for the care you have taken of the boys whilst school’s been out. We’ve no cases of Covid-19 positives to report from our 3 series of Lateral Flow tests (LFT) which are now complete (barring some Monday mop-ups). We send home to parents and guardians a present of 9 LFT’s to pick-up from where we leave off now. To all mothers at home looking forward to Mothers Day on Sunday - I hope your sons treat you right royally, even though of course the excitements they can bring can only be small and local.
Our 'Make a difference Eco Team’ have a virtual meeting every Friday. They have been busy over the break and have some good plans for the weeks ahead; one immediate request from our neighbours to parents at pickup is to please switch off car engines if waiting at the end of the day to keep air toxin levels down in our neighbourhood. If you see some of our team out and about with such fliers, please give them an interested & cheery welcome - they are out to save the planet!
