Personal Message from Dave Carter SMĀĻ°ķ CET (CEO)
Happy holidays to everyone in the SMĀĻ°ķ family of schools.
I hope you can look back on the school year just gone, with great pride and satisfaction in a job well-done. We are reminded by St Oscar Romero that we are âministers, not MessiahsâĻ. we cannot do it all, but what we can do, we do to the best of our abilityâ. No doubt there will be things you have left unfinished at the end of the year, but youâll have also achieved a great deal too. The most important job you can do is to love the children. I know that each and every one of you in your respective roles have done this with utmost care, dedication and commitment. I hope you have enjoyed yourself too. Schools are meant to be fun places and whilst there will inevitably be tough times, it is important not to take ourselves too seriously either!
Thank you for everything you have done this year, for sticking together, for collaborating with others, for modelling learning to the children and for not giving up on anyone. It is the most profound privilege and blessing to work with young people. You are affecting (and effecting!) the life-chances of many hundreds of children every day, you are having an impact on their wider families and future generations. Never under-estimate the difference you make.
Thank you to those staff who continue to work over the holidays to ensure our schools are ready for September – you are very often the unsung heroes!
Have a great summer, I hope you get some quality time with your families.
