Chair's Message

Message from the Chair of Governors

Dear Pupils, Parents and Staff,

It is that time again when we collectively take time out from our busy schedules and reflect together with families and friends on the past and what the future holds. A key aspect of this is embracing the Christmas story and reflecting and celebrating the birth of Jesus at Christmas. In doing so we also take the opportunity to live out that call from His Holiness Pope Francis to nurture our own family lives.

This term has again been action-packed and we are seeing the sterling efforts of all the team involved at St. Begh’s coming to fruition. I would like in particular on behalf of the Governing Body to sincerely thank all Staff for their dedication and hard work throughout the Autumn Term.        

May I make a request, that in embracing the Christmas message that you take the opportunity to pay a visit to a Crib in a Church nearby to you and reflect on the amazing story that it symbolises and which emerges at Christmas. Also, whilst generally we are a fortunate community, I would ask that we also remember those who are less fortunate.

I would like to thank Fr. Cenydd and Fr. Richard from St. Begh’s for their pastoral and spiritual support to the children throughout this term. 

Could I wish you all a very Happy and Holy Christmas and have a restful and peaceful holiday.

For those of you who are travelling during the festive season, I wish you a safe journey and please remain vigilant in these challenging times.

We look forward to working together in the Spring Term.

With every good wish.

Rev. Deacon Stephen Scott

Chair of Governors
