Christmas wishes from the Headteacher
A Christmas message from our Headteacher
It has been a very busy, successful term for our staff and pupils. In the midst of our teaching and learning, preparation for all our festivities, matches, concerts, musical celebrations and community activities, we are mindful of the need to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. People all over the world will be celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and sharing in the joy that this brings. At Gunnersbury we have fostered the true spirit and meaning of Christmas, by sharing our own gratitude for a good and secure life with those who are not so fortunate. As ever our pupils and families have given generously to support our annual Operation Christmas Child Charity with over 300 shoeboxes filled with toys, sweets and prayers, for less fortunate children. Our carol singing raised much-appreciated funds for our own local Log Cabin Children’s Charity, and older members of our local community have enjoyed their own Christmas party held by our pupils and staff. I would like to thank you all, parents, pupils and friends of Gunnersbury, for your continued support and to wish you and your loved ones a restful Christmas and a New Year of health and happiness.
Kevin S. Burke, Headteacher
