The end of the school term gives us an opportunity to thank staff, parents and pupils for all their extraordinary hard work and resilience during the last academic year which has been so affected by Covid.
In the words of Pope Francis: “We pray today for teachers who have to work so hard to provide lessons via the internet and other digital ways, and we also pray for students who have to take exams in a way they are not used to. Let us accompany them with prayer.”
Meanwhile, in the words of the old 'school holiday hymn' ...
Mother of all that is pure and glad
All that is bright and blest
As we have taken our toil to thee
So will we take our rest.
Take thou and bless our Holiday.
O Causa Nostrae Laetitiae.
