As school and Church school rev up for a new year let us think about the following (source unknown)

And So They Come To Us And so they come to us - And we reach out to them With understanding and with love. We share the sacred trust we hold, Yet we know that each of us Must somehow stand alone With every child in turn To help them see, and hear and feel, Our children come to learn The Way of Truth - And so, they come to us. Praying for a wonderful year of teaching and learning for us all!!!
