Mr Griffin's Good Morning Message

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to the first day of the last half-term of the school year!


Q: Why isn't the clock allowed in the library?

A: Because it tocks too much!


I hope that the Holy Spirit, that we celebrated receiving yesterday, on the Feast of Pentecost, brings us all the strength, wisdom and understanding to help each other as we continue to complete our learning activities at home.


Please stay happy and healthy, safe and smiley.



Please pray with me

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me.

You are with me night and day.

I want to love You always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.


Start your day in a healthy way
