After a very successful and enjoyable week of end of year events, our students have left in high spirits to enjoy a long summer holiday. Teaching staff will conclude their year this Friday.
I have always maintained that a strong sense of community lies at the heart of every successful school. To that end I wish to thank you for your support of, and contribution to, John Wollaston this year. Whether you have attended a P&F meeting, a sports carnival, volunteered in the classroom, kept in contact with the staff or indeed any other event or activity, you have made a positive difference to the school experience of your child. I know that young people thrive if parents and teachers care – care not just about their academic progress but their growth on the path to maturity. I am grateful that a strength of our community is that we work closely together, in the most positive way, to effect the best possible outcomes for our students.
I wish you an enjoyable festive season with your family and leave you with a Christmas blessing from Praise and Thanksgiving
May the joy of the angels,
the eagerness of the shepherds,
the perseverance of the wise men,
the obedience of Joseph and Mary,
and the peace of the Christ child
be yours this Christmas.
And the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be upon you and remain with you always.
With good wishes Anne Ford
