As we draw towards the end of this rather unusual, but historical year, I look back at what has been an incredibly happy Michaelmas term here at Lambrook. It continues to be a real privilege to see the children immersing themselves in all that they encounter. Whether in the classroom, learning remotely or on the sports field; whether through our extra-curricular programme, playing in our grounds or spending time with teachers and peers, the children have continued to develop their love of learning and the outdoors, grown in empathy and kindness to those around them, and possessed an energy and can-do attitude that is infectious to all.

Despite the absence of certain aspects of school life over the past term, the weeks have been full of our usual academic learning, Future Schools preparations, sports matches, Performing Arts and, most importantly, giving to others; the children’s ability, confidence and aptitude have all grown exponentially, and you should be extremely proud of them.

We have also had the opportunity to create some new Lambrook traditions this term, with virtual swimming galas, digital dramas, Shakespeare collaborations, a happiness festival, a Lambrook cookbook, charity fundraising initiatives and, most recently, our musical and 12 Days of Giving Advent Calendars.

It has been a genuine pleasure to speak with many of you at the front of school, at drop off and pick up; however, we have really missed not being able to host parents to our usual sports fixtures, concerts and social events, which is particularly noticeable at this time of year. I continue to be thankful for the many ways in which you support the school and hope that it won’t be too long before we will be able to welcome you all on site once again.

May I wish you all a very happy Christmas and every blessing for the New Year.
