COVID19 Updates

UPDATE: 18.3.2020   Following the Government’s decision to close all schools from 3.15pm on Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice, all school staff will be working to support and implement the Government’s COVID-19 strategy.

 

In this time...

 

Lord Jesus

In the mist of a storm, 

You said 'Peace, be still.'

 

Let our anxious fears fade away,

Surround this school in faith, hope and love,

Bring our nation through this challenging time.

Grant wisdom to those with great responsibility,

Gentle hands and patience to those care,

And healing and hope to those who contract the virus.

Amen
