Some of our lovely children having, ‘the best day ever!’
A MESSAGE TO OUR
In most fairy tales, the characters in a book need to solve or overcome a problem. There is always a happy ending where things end up better than they were before. This is one of those times.
For a while, we are going on a journey which will mean we need to stay apart until things are made better and we can come back together again.
I know lots of you are worried about a bug that is making people sick. Our wonderful doctors and nurses are working very hard to make people better and to find a cure.
The people in charge of our country think they can look after us better and find the cure quicker if we stay apart for a while. So, we must be brave and do what they say.
Your teachers will be teaching and caring for you in a different way for a while but we will stay in touch with you. They will be talking to you through our school website, helping you with your work and calling you on the telephone to check on how you are feeling. Keep working hard, try your best and talk about your worries. Look at our school website and your class pages for extra support with this. Your teacher will understand if you are finding all of this as hard as they are too. We will be talking to your teachers about how you are doing and feeling. Remember, if you are worried tell someone.
Listen to your mom and dad, phone your grandparents and ask how they are and remember to be kind to each other. Please help with jobs around the house and remember that this will only be for a short while.
Pray! When you are worried, turn to God. He is our rock and comforter in times of uncertainty. You only need to ask, and it is yours.
We will be back together soon, I promise. Before you know it, we will be back at St. Paul’s, learning, playing and having fun together.
We will miss you all very much. Sending lots of love and best wishes.
God bless children,
Love from all the staff at St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School
A Prayer for the World
God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right medicines
to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.
