7th Sunday of the Year
Dear Friends in Christ,
I would like to take this opportunity of sharing some important news with you. Many of our parents already know that our Head teacher of St. John Fisher Primary School, Mrs. Patricia Bryson will be leaving us at the end of April 2019. We will be very sad to see her go, as over the past three years she has contributed so much in leading her staff and the school to once again regain our ‘Good’ rating through Ofsted. Mrs. Bryson’s only daughter was gravely sick over a year ago with cancer, and she has decided to relocate to Ireland where her daughter is now living. We wish her every happiness and success in all of her future endeavours. Family is everything!
In a bid to help the school, which certainly suffered financially during the interregnum of appointing Mrs Bryson as Head back in 2017; in light of the recent sale of the site of St. Thomas More site in Debden, in conjunction with the permissions of the Trustees & Finance Board of the Diocese of Brentwood, our parish has committed to help the school financially over the next five years, by setting up a fund to give additional financial support & aid to the school in the education of our children. Obviously this is a great commitment on behalf of the parish, and I would be grateful if you could keep this in mind when making your Weekly Offertory contribution.
Our Catholic Primary School is a wonderful asset to our Parish, and many generations of children have gone through the school since its establishment by the Chigwell sisters in 1955. For all those who value Catholic Education please be supportive of St. John Fisher School. Please also pray that the Lord will send us a good New Head teacher to replace Mrs Bryson.
May God Bless You All,
