“The best we can be”


Head teacher weekly blog:

Pete the Poet enjoyed his day at Mells on Monday and together with all the children, produced a wonderful mural celebrating multicultural issues.  Both schools' murals will be on show at the Multicultural Festival at the Cheese and Grain on Sunday, 11:00 - 2pm.  This also fits in well with Black History Month this October, and our mission to ensure our schools are active beacons of courageous advocacy, inclusion and celebrating of diversity.  We have been donated some copies of Marcus Rashford's book, You are a Champion from Purple Elephant.

Well being tip for the week: Take some time to reflect on a person who has inspired you, perhaps to think differently or more inclusively about something, to flourish.
How did they help you and how has it made a difference? Can you reflect some of those inspirational qualities to somebody this week?

A Collect for Black History Month:

Compassionate God,
who sent Jesus Christ
to deliver us from all manner of injustices and inequalities,
create in us new hearts and enlarged visions,
to see the image of God in every person
irrespective of background, race and ethnicity.
May we be generous in our love of others
as we work towards ending misunderstanding, racism and injustice;
creating communities of human flourishing,
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
