Whoever had the idea, well, it was a good one. 

Since the pandemic first started, many people have been putting hearts up and around their residents and places of work to show support and give honour to essential service workers. Could we do that as a school? Some of the staff thought so and arranged to have wooden hearts made available to our school community to decorate to be hung on the school fence.

So on the morning of Wednesday, May 6th, the homemade wooden hearts ready and waiting for pickup. What a lot of hearts! Would they all get taken? We didn't have to worry. So many families and staff were on-board with this project that the hearts were all taken by the next day. That gave very little turn-around time to complete them by Friday but almost everyone who had taken hearts returned them right on time. That's a feat in and of itself! Then it took only a bit of time for Mrs Jung, Mrs Dyble and Mrs Lang to arrange them artistically on the front fence.

Thank you, school community, for decorating these hearts with so much love and care. And a big THANK YOU to Jackson Wall who provided the wood, and cut-out and delivered the hearts. We appreciate your hard work and generosity.

Have you seen our fence recently? If you haven't, you'll definitely want to. The result of your efforts is fabulous! Our fence is bright, cheerful and definitely shows the support and appreciation of our school community to our essential service workers. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again: We're better together. Always.

Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. (Hebrews 10:24-26)
