Letter from the Head of Secondary

13 Dec 2020

Dear secondary Parents/Carers,

Re: End of Year 2020 message

As the year is winding down and we draw near to the end of the first term, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support during this challenging pandemic time. I hope you are looking forward to the holiday which can be a wonderful time spent with family and friends, reflecting on the year that has gone by. In fact, in 2020 all of us are grieving in one or more ways. In other words, this holiday season is a time fraught with emotion, grief, and loss. Whether you have been drastically affected by the pandemic, or your life has reached a “new normal”, chances are the holidays are going to feel a little different this year.
