"At this Christmas when Christ comes, will He find a warm heart? Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving the others with God's own love and concern."
St Teresa of Calcutta
Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,
As the term draws to a close, let us give thanks for the blessings of our Lord. Christmas is a very special time and I hope you are all able to spend time with loved ones during this festive season.
Over the holiday period we continue to pray for all those impacted by the pandemic and for those who have experienced loss and hardship.
It has been a busy term but your children have done you proud! Given the huge disruption to education over the last 20 months, pupils at Archbishop Ilsley have excelled this term, as you will see in the Christmas edition of our newsletter.
The new term will begin with lateral flow testing in order to ensure everyone is safe as we return to school. Please see the letter I sent out earlier this week with details of the times and the days pupils are due to return to school.
May I wish everyone a very happy and holy Christmas and best wishes for 2022.
