Sharing love with our local community
I am writing to you all to thank you, for the love and compassion, support and trust in our values, that you showed last week- in what were some very strange and difficult times. We all showed that by coming together and uniting as one, we could be strong!
You all helped me to share this message with our local community, through the wonderful songs we recorded; letters, cards and pictures we created, to send out to those who may need our love and thoughts, during this difficult time. I managed to send over 200 envelopes with you well wishes out to our community.
Well, today at school, there were letters in response! Hand written letters from a lady of 95years in Andover Nursing Home and another from a couple from the village- self-isolating due to ill health. They were blown away by your words of compassion and encouragement and loved that you had taken the time to think of others. One couple have even donated a sum of money to our school, to say 'thank you' and help us to continue helping you with your learning when we all come back together. We are quite blown away by their kindness in return and it just goes to show that with a little kindness, we can fill the buckets of others and ourselves!
So thank you! I am so proud of you all! What a wonderful message to share in such challenging times.
Take care of yourselves and continue to show love and compassion to each other. A little kindness goes a long way.
