Our Theme for 2021

"Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection

The lovers, the dreamers and me…"

As we all try to rebuild after the devastating effect of the world-wide pandemic, one thing has been abundantly clear – we need each other. We need each other in so many different ways – physically, spiritually, psychologically, emotionally. The feeling that we are connected becomes not a luxury but a necessity. We know that Maslow has belongingness as a need low down on his pyramid and therefore essential for human success but it is this that has been particularly difficult to achieve with families locked down in their homes and the very groups that make us feel as if we belong unable to function in many cases.

We have to find ways to connect more in this year- and we are not so naïve as to think it will be easy – and not only more but across a more diverse range of people. Our shared humanity cries out for us to connect but our inbuilt prejudices often prevent us from connecting to each other. As a school community, we have to rise to this challenge. We have to find rainbow connections so that we are exposed to the beauty and majesty of the world both natural and human and that we overcome the storm that has raged through us all. Our tree has been shaken and tempest-tossed but as Yorkies our roots run deep and strong.

May 2021 be a year of discovering anew the joy we can find in each other and may we emerge stronger than ever because of this.
