Message from the Headteacher
This Sunday’s second reading talks about how the love of God has been poured in to our hearts through the Holy Spirit. I am certain this has been evident at Campion as we celebrated World Book Day last Thursday and had the third of our super learning days this week. It was wonderful to see so many staff and pupils really engaging with World Book Day (I enjoyed dressing up as Goblet of Fire Harry Potter!) Reading is such an important activity and I honestly believe our lives are enriched through the power of stories! The evidence is clear in that pupils who read at home for pleasure more often than not achieve better overall. This is because their vocabulary is enhanced as well as their knowledge of the world. Super Learning Day was again a powerful example of how much we value the curriculum beyond the classroom and how much we invest in educating pupils in matters of personal well-being and in their futures. This time we had visits to the Thinktank, workshops on relationships, careers support with the ‘One Job Challenge’, sign language training, Duke of Edinburgh preparation and many other activities. We welcome back all our skiers from Switzerland who had a fantastic time. Check out the pictures on Twitter!
Finally, please rest assured that we are closely following all developments regarding the Coronavirus. Please do encourage your children to follow the hygiene advice being given by Public Health England. Effective handwashing is crucial in combatting the virus. We will continue to keep you informed, via ParentMail, of any developments.
Second Reading: Romans 5:1-2, 5-8
Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith to this grace in which we stand and we boast in hope of the glory of God.
And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in to our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
For Christ, while we were still helpless, died at the appointed time for the ungodly.
Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die.
But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
