It is with deepest sadness that I must let you know that Mrs Thomas passed away today after a brave battle with cancer.

I'm sure the staff and everyone connected with Hebden Royd will be sending their condolences to her husband, sons and family.

I look forward to seeing you all on Monday and sharing stories about this wonderful, talented woman.

There will be a memorial book open in the hall from 8.30 am on Monday 26th February until 3 pm on Friday 2nd March.

It has been a tremendous privilege to have known and worked with Mrs Thomas.  She will be deeply missed.

Collective Worship Theme

This term until Easter, in collective worship we are thinking about the Christian Value of Justice.
The Justice revealed in the Bible is always seen, not as an eye-for-an-eye retribution, but as the call to take responsibility for one another. It is a call for love, to make sure that no-one is excluded – particularly by being poor or oppressed – but to ensure that all are able to have what is right and fair for them.
It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and seeing right prevail.
It is about social justice, especially for those who suffer most and are least able to protect themselves.

In RE lessons we are looking into the deeper meanings of Festivals .
We want to encourage children through activity and conversation to make links between beliefs and stories from the festivals. Does light conquer darkness? (Diwali) Is love stronger than death? (Easter) Can God free people from slavery? (Pesach) Is it good to say sorry? (Yom Kippur) Does fasting make you a better person? (Ramadan)
