The Kirk Fenton Pro

Weekly newsletter for staff 8th March 2019


Well, I don't know where this week has gone! With meetings and other commitments this week I don't seem to have seen some people so I do apologise if I've missed you. Hopefully, next week will be a little calmer....

Today my worship was on happiness. We all know children who are innately happy, the ones with such a cheerful disposition that it rubs off on those around them and sometimes even on us.

What a gift that is. They are often not the brightest children, nor the most athletic but that doesn't matter to them. They enjoy doing a variety of different things during their days with us and do most things reasonably well - not too many disasters, not too many triumphs but lots of good-natured fun on the way.

These are the children we enjoy having in our classes most. Thank you for the gift of happiness Lord, and for the effect of these children on the rest of our class and ourselves.
