A very warm welcome back to all our old and new St Matthew’s Families. I hope your holiday’s were peaceful and restful, and if not, I hope they were packed with fun and frivolity!The new term has started off with a very positive feel, shiny new classrooms, shiny new teachers and very shiny new, happy pupils! (If not new, relaxed and ready to tackle whatever is thrown at them!)Happy Gardeners! We have already had some very keen parent volunteers in to weed the new flower border in the spiritual garden. Its really starting to take shape now, as Mr Armstrong (Mrs Armstrong’s better half) has also laid our patio that had been kindly donated by a St Matthew’s family. We are expecting a donation of topsoil and gravel to arrive shortly to finish the hard landscaping and then the garden club can plant the other borders for us. Its amazing how little miracles happen with a lot of generosity and good will. Prayer WeekI wanted to share with you some of the lovely photos from our Prayer/Reflection week. The children really surpassed themselves by demonstrating their empathy and resilience. We asked them to reflect on some very challenging topics.
