As we approach the Easter break, we look forward to rest and rejuvenation. Easter is a time for new beginnings and re-focus. Over the last year, we have had to learn to adapt to different ways of living, working, learning and keeping ourselves and loved ones safe. I am so very proud of our students, they have been so resilient and risen to every challenge.

WELCOME EVENING FOR YEAR SIX
It was lovely to see so many of our new families at the Year Six Welcome Evening on Tuesday 15th March, 2022. Families were able to meet our staff members and gain more insight into the School and how we will be working with their children moving forward into the new academic year. The event is always an exciting opportunity to meet new members of the School and welcome them to our family. The evening was extremely well attended and we were treated to some wonderful vocal and musical performances by our talented students. I look forward to working with the New Year 7 students in September 2022.
YEAR 11 AND 13
Our Year 11 and Year 13 students continue to remain focused on their examination subjects and have adjusted well to the changes that have been implemented this year. Within all subjects, students continue to be provided with opportunities to demonstrate the knowledge and skill that they have acquired throughout the course. Over the Easter holidays we will be providing additional classes for some students to support them in preparation for the exams. If you child is required to attend they will be notified individually; the sessions are compulsory for those invited.
A THOUGHT FOR EASTER
Christians believe that Jesus, throughout his ministry, reached out to those who had been wronged, oppressed or who had been marginalised by society.
For those who have suffered during this time, both here and wider in the world, it can be comforting to know that Jesus himself suffered and was mistreated; that He is someone who can truly empathise with your situation. At Easter we remember the sacrifice that Jesus paid for us on the cross showing his love for us. As we close for Easter let us take time to reflect on those who have shown sacrificial love to us and let us take action and show love and kindness to someone beyond ourselves.
If you have been finding this period of the pandemic difficult or have been affected by the many global humanitarian crises there are many resources which can support you through this. Enfield Thrive Together has an excellent range of support which you can access via this link:
