Father David’s Reflection

Father David has reminded us this week that Easter is about new life.  He says that everything about Easter is about things being new, refreshed, changed and different.  

I hope everyone feels refreshed next week after the long bank holiday weekend, especially Yr 6 who are working extremely hard preparing for SATs.
