St Edmund’s is a thriving, positive and happy environment where individuals achieve excellent levels of personal development. The students and staff recognize the importance of the school’s Catholic and Christian education and are committed to it in every way. Working with students we aim to foster a growth and commitment to the love and service of Christ through the teachings of the Catholic Church.
The last half term was extremely busy with an amazing Senior Citizen Party, some incredible sporting achievements, activities and trips. There has also been a huge amount of learning, prayer and progress.
As we have now approached the summer term we are mindful of the challenges ahead of students in Years 10 & 11. Our best wishes, support and prayers are with them. We know that tests and exams can be especially stressful for many of our children. That said, we must continue to develop that high level of resilience needed in life today and ensure that our students are ready for the challenge ahead.
My thanks to parents for all your support with attendance, homework and uniform. On the latter point, jumpers are optional throughout the summer term, as we hope the weather improves. Over Easter we have redecorated the rooms in the Kelly block (History/Geography) as well planning for our new building. You may have read in the local news how we have been awarded further funding to redevelop the old Caretaker’s Lodge into a new 10 classroom block. Having gained planning permission we are moving forward full steam ahead and hope to be starting this project around June. This should be completed by this time next year and provide the additional classroom space the school now requires.
Over the last few weeks of the Spring Term we have experienced an ‘outbreak’ in gum chewing. With so much investment in the school site we will continue to enforce our ‘no gum rule’ so that we can maintain our learning environment.
I hope over the Easter break you had an opportunity to pause and reflect upon the meaning of Easter. The Bible tells us how Jesus came to give us forgiveness, purpose and a place in Heaven. A new term will provide fresh opportunities for all of us to continue to develop and grow.
