Evening everyone and welcome to an informal round of some of the key events this week at All Saints in my blog.
It’s been another challenging week in terms of coronavirus and there is still much uncertainty ahead, although this week there seems to have been some encouraging news on testing and also on the peak of the virus possibly having passed.
I am sure that many of you will have taken part in the “Clap for Carers & Key Workers” on Thursday nights. If you work in the NHS or as a key worker…Thank you! Your work is gratefully appreciated.
At school, we remain open for key worker children, those who have an Education Health Care Plan or are supported by a social worker. I know that the longer the lockdown goes on, many young people are finding things tough, so if your child is eligible to return to school, please do contact us and we will arrange this with you.
This week, tutors have been in contact with parents of their tutees – I hope this has been welcomed. We will continue to do this on a fortnightly basis for as long as the lockdown lasts. Also this week, we have trialled a live lesson with Year 10 and will do so again next week in two other subjects Maths and Science.
We are setting up Microsoft Teams for all students and will contact you and them with further information about this over the next week or so once we have this work completed and are ready to share it more fully.
Next week, I intend to trial some large virtual get togethers online with students to talk directly with them. Further details will follow!
Finally, here is a message for all of our community from Brother Ally Kay who leads All Saints Church.
A message from Bro Ally Kay and Revd. Betty Port of All Saints Church, Wyke
It is an understatement to say that we are living in difficult times. Every family that is linked to All Saints School will have your own problems and your own challenges to face. We want you all to know- staff, students and your families- that you are being held in prayer by us and by the parish congregation. We pray that the values that have always been at the heart of the community of All Saints School will still flourish and strengthen. We think especially of the values of caring for one another, understanding and courage, values that are at the heart of the ministry of Jesus. God bless you all, now and always.
Revd. Bro. Ally Kay, Rector of Wyke Regis All Saints with St. Edmunds and Revd. Betty Port, Associate Minister of the same parish and School Chaplain.
