Even the wet weather could not dampen the enthusiasm of pupils, parents and staff as we returned to the start of the new academic year on Wednesday. These first few days have been all about getting to know each other again, establishing rules for a harmonious classroom and settling into the rules and expectations of school life. Thanks for Mrs Rodrigues-Hopkins and Mrs Kendall who kindly hosted a warm welcome to parents old and new at the ‘Tea and Tissues’ coffee morning. Families have joined us from home and away this term and we extend a special welcome therefore for the Bartlett, Hopkins, Robertson, Thompson, Luong, Rehman, Doy, Sweeting, Town and Wibberley families. Welcome to our Sacred Heart family.
