Thanks to all and Happy Christmas 2019 
Over the last week it was touching to consider, that the children had voted that the most important value they could share this Christmas was love. I think this sums up what Hope Community School is all about that through loving and respecting each other we can enrich each other’s lives. This becomes poignant at this time of year, when many of us reflect on the gift of love which we have been offered through Jesus being born for all. 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff for their dedication in serving your children each day. I thank all families for preparing your children for school, so they are ready to learn, eager to progress and keen to be active members of the school, and on behalf of the pupils, I thank New Generation Church for the gift of the Christmas books, “With love from God to You. “
