It has been wonderful to see our children returning to school , looking incredibly smart and ready to learn. Thank you to our families who have made this happen.
Our staff have also returned-relaxed, revived and renewed-ready to face the challenges of a new year.
During our first whole school collective worship the children were reminded that our mission at St Columba is to ‘hold hands with Jesus as we love ,learn and grow together’. The educational aim of this mission is to, ‘inspire, motivate and achieve’. We have all renewed our promise to work together to inspire and motivate our children, so that they can ALL achieve to the best of their ability. The children realise that this can only be done with: good attendance and punctuality; working hard at all times; following the school rules and by being kind and generous to all.
Families, staff and children have already, this week, made a great start. We pray that with Jesus by our sides, we will continue to love, learn and grow.
