Our Lady of Ransom Family Day

A massive THANK YOU to all who came to our 1st Our Lady of Ransom Family Day.  I hope you agree that it was a fantastic success.  It was so lovely to see so many families present in our school, celebrating Mass together, enjoying looking at the wonderful work of the children, sharing lunch and cheering everybody at our sports afternoon.  I hope that you managed to see all of your children’s work, the super displays around the school and to look at our new library and the convent garden.  Our Family Day reminds us all of what a fantastic school we have here at Our Lady of Ransom ~ not only in terms of the building and of the quality of work that our children produce but very importantly, the wonderful community atmosphere that is present among our children and families.   Another big THANK YOU to my my FABULOUS teaching and non-teaching staff.  They all work so hard to care for your children EVERY day of the year.  To find the effort and enthusiasm to prepare a day like today amid sports days, assessments, reports and performances is testament to their absolute dedication to your children and our school. A WONDERFUL day ~ roll on next year!  Please let us know what you thought of the Family Day by adding your comments to this blog.
