Weekly comment from our stage coordinators

Courage to speak the truth and the power of forgiveness are still very much resonating around the school, with both staff and children enjoined to highlight these aspects of behaviour.  Forgiveness is such a de-fuser, and in the end leads to a simpler and freer life.
