New School Year
As our schools return for the new year, I would like to wish them every success.
In particular I have seen the work and the preparations made by the Principals and staff of our primary schools to make them as safe an environment as possible for the children and the whole school community and I commend them for all this work undertaken over the summer.
We ask the Lord to keep all our schools under his guidance in the light of the new circumstances of the global pandemic.
