Term One has reached the halfway mark! Generally, the children are happy lots of smiling faces and chit chatter. After such a long Christmas break, there will always be a few of our beautiful children who find it difficult to remember ‘hands, feet and teeth to yourself’ We have no doubt they will learn in the short term.
As you are aware, we are in our Lenten Season. Lent is a time of reflection and preparation before the celebration of Easter. Usually this is a time of prayer, fasting, doing penance and giving to others less fortunate. This does not necessarily mean money; it can be random acts of kindness which is giving your time.
