Cardinal Pole Spring Term 2 Newsletter
Welcome to the Cardinal Pole Good News!
This half term has been amazing, our students have engaged well, not only in their studies but in their extra-curricular activities as well.
As we are approaching Easter, it is important for us to reflect upon the death and resurrection of Christ. Many of us have given things up for Lent as a show of commitment to our faith and to reflect the sacrifice that Christ made for the forgiveness of our sins. As we go off on Easter break, we take this time to reflect upon how we can be more selfless in our daily lives through small acts of kindness.
I wish you a restful and safe break and I look forward to seeing everyone next term.
