I would like to thank you all for all the support you are giving both your children and us at school in these very challenging circumstances. The teachers and I have been blown away by the amazing work, activities and creative ideas you have been sharing with us. Please continue doing this as we all miss seeing the children. Knowing what everyone has been getting up to is spreading smiles amongst all of the adults in the school. We are so proud of each and every one of the children for carrying on and spreading acts of kindness where they can.
There are many examples of our children caring for others and supporting their well-being. However, the Sprague family have really made a huge difference to others at this difficult time and a local Care home wanted to share this with us:
In this incredibly difficult time Harry and Evie Sprague have been creative, generous and inspirational. Harry, Evie, their older sister Jessica and mum Dawn, who is a volunteer befriender, have spent hours creating beautiful cards, filling them with pictures, drawings, poems and positive messages and sending them to the residents of Park View, a local care home. The residents have been delighted to receive them, they have really brightened their day knowing that these lovely children and their mum are thinking of them and taking the time to keep in touch. The manager of the care home has said 'Dawn and her children sent in all these gorgeous cards with messages and pictures which the residents loved. We read the poems to the residents and they read some out too. We miss Dawn but what a lovely gesture that the residents keep talking about. Please send a big thank you to Dawn and her children'. Harry and Evie have even started making and sending origami flowers!
Clearly, thoughtful acts no matter how big or small make a huge difference.
Keep sharing and keep safe.
All of the staff at Gorse Hill School
