Weekly newsletter for staff 15th February 2019


As we are a church school, I thought I would start to use this space as an area for spiritual reflection based on a lovely book I have. Let me know what you think...

This week a reflection on the over-active child

We all know one. They are like a rubber ball: always bouncing around, usually in the wrong place. Their work - when they do some - is a mess, and all their brains seem to be used for is finding new ways to be cheeky or to disrupt others. They can't sit still for an instant; even other children start to get tired of the chaos they cause.

So what do we do about these children, Lord?

We know they are made in your image and we should love them as you love us, but sometimes that can be so hard. I don't know the answer, Lord and I need your help to reach their fizzing minds and all that misused energy to find ways to channel them into something positive.

I know that with God nothing is impossible; so if you can hear me, I could really use your help.

Have a lovely weekend,

Karen x
