Infection control is very much on our minds at the moment as we struggle to keep everything running as we battle another strain of Covid. But this week in assembly we started another infection, we are going to infect you all with joy. This Sunday’s gospel tells the famous story of the wedding feast of Cana where Jesus turns the water into wine. With this miracle Jesus spread joy to the wedding guests and especially to his mother. Now I wish I could tell you that your children will all be coming home and spreading joy in that way but sadly not. However we been thinking of lots of ways to spread joy so hopefully if there is sickness or sadness in your household you will all get cheered up by your joyful children.

Our behaviour focus this week was to talk quietly, especially in class and in the dinner hall. Well it has certainly been quieter but I am not sure that we needed to make much effort as there have been far fewer children in school so it was going to be quieter. Thank you for your understanding this week and not expecting too much of us in terms of communication. We are managing by moving staff around and people stepping up to take responsibility that are way above their pay grade although not their capabilities. As ever I am indebted to our amazing staff team. I am attending a meeting with public health late this afternoon to share our struggles and to see if there is anything further we can or should do. We will get through this and are very appreciative of all your support. We know all your lives are very disrupted by Covid at the moment. Have a great weekend, Mrs Gallagher
