I have been overwhelmed by the kindness, love and support I have been shown this week following the loss of my beloved dad on Sunday. I am truly grateful to be surrounded by so many thoughtful and caring people and I will be forever thankful for each and every one of you who has taken the time to send flowers, write a card, give me a hug or an acknowledging, sympathetic nod, squeeze my hand or just tell me how sorry they are. I know it is never easy to face someone who has experienced loss for fear of upsetting them further but I cannot express how comforting it is that so many of you have taken the time to do so.
I would also like to thank the staff for their support during this time, particularly Mrs Joyce and Miss Griffiths for stepping up to lead the school in my absence. They have done a great job.
