MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Hello friends,

It’s always surprising how much children seem to grow up over the course of the summer holidays. I learnt some years ago that buying the uniform at the beginning of the holidays was never a good idea because as soon as September arrived the trousers that were too long or big around the waist are now too short and too tight around the middle.

Some of the best summers I had when I was a child, were those spent playing in the garden, climbing trees and falling out of them, making perfume using petals from mum’s roses, learning to ride my bike without stabilisers resulting in a trip to A&E and bringing all sorts of “pets” home such as frogs from the stream. I once brought a jar full of stick insects home that ended up breaking and for weeks my mum was finding stick insects all over the house and in the kitchen cupboards. My parents, of course, probably didn’t enjoy those summers as much as I did, but they are memorable and bring a smile to our faces when we think about them.
They say, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and I think that’s true. There is so much pressure on children to grow up, to be independent and take on responsibility. The pressures of the world are hard on us as adults, so why do we then impose that pressure onto our children?

With us all getting back to school and routine it would be so easy to slip into the old routines. The pressures of school and work will soon mount up and before we know it, summer will seem a very long time ago. We need to try to keep hold of the importance of rest and relaxation.

There are only 24 hours in each day and we can’t do it all, and that’s okay.

With blessings 
Donna
