Our thoughts are with the Hanlon and Heffer families as we pray for Josh Hanlon while he recovers from a very serious illness.
May the God of the misty dawn waken you,
May the God of the rising sun stir you up,
May the God of morning sky send you on your way,
May the God of noon-day stillness renew your strength,
May the God of afternoon bring you home,
May the God of sunset delight your eye,
May the God of twilight calm your nerves,
And may the God of dusk bring you peace,
And may God bless you,
The rising and setting sun,
The Alpha and the Omega,
The Beginning and the End,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The WWCC is free for volunteers and is valid for 5 years.
We would advise all parents who help at the school in any capacity to apply for a WWCC and supply their clearance number and date of birth to the school office. We do not need to see any paperwork. For Mrs Akehurst to verify your WWCC number she will also need to know your date of birth.
