Dear St Mary’s families,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year and I hope you all had a happy and safe Christmas.

Unfortunately, I have some very sad news to share, Mrs De Alvis, who was a Teaching Assistant and Lunchtime Supervisor at the Infant School sadly passed away on 30th December.

Mrs De Alvis worked at St Mary’s for 18 years. She taught and nurtured so many children who needed additional support with care, understanding and patience and made a difference to each and every life in her care.

Mrs De Alvis was a dear colleague and friend to us all and we ask that you remember her and her family in your prayers.

Dear God,

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen

I look forward to seeing all our children again tomorrow at the usual time for the beginning of the new school term.

God bless you all,

Miss O’Callaghan
