Dear children, Parents, Carers, Staff and friends of St. Joseph’s Infant School,
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
I just wanted to pen a few lines to my St Joseph’s Family and make sure you knew, you are all in my thoughts and prayers and that I am really missing you all. Well done to the children for the great posts on See Saw, there is a great deal of hard work still being done at home. Well done Mums and Dads for helping children with their learning. This certainly is an Easter with a difference. No traditional Easter celebrations, no Easter Egg hunt, no Easter bonnet parade, no Easter service led by Year 2, but these things were not meant to be.
A huge vote of thanks and our prayers goes out to those Key Workers in NHS who are looking after the sick and vulnerable, and those who are working to provide food in our shops and keep our community working. Huge thanks also to our staff who have volunteered over the Easter break to look after the children of NHS staff.
Pope Francis’ Easter message:
“What a joy it is for me to announce this message: Christ is risen! I would like it to go out to every house and every family, especially where the suffering is greatest.”
Monsignor Joseph encourages you all to pray together, “The family prays together stays together.” Please hold in your thoughts and prayers our loved ones who are ill, all those who are alone and all who are working on our behalf to help us. We especially pray for those in the NHS who are working on the front line. Please try to find some time daily to pray with your children, remember to pray for us as we pray for you.
Ms Julie Beaumont and the staff of St Joseph’s Infant School
