I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a restful holiday.

To me this time of year is all about family so I hope you all manage to take time together with your loved ones to re-centre and refresh yourselves. There is nothing quite so energizing as being in a context where you know that you are deeply and unequivocally loved so revel in your nearest and dearest this holiday. If you can, amidst all of the frantic preparations and socializing, also find some time to be quiet and alone and try hard to empty your mind of all your cares and worries and be at peace. If you can manage this, you will discover that you are ready and able to back next term renewed and inspired to be the very best version of yourself you can be.

 It has obviously been a very challenging term for all sorts of reasons and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have gone out of your way to offer support and encouragement; it has been deeply appreciated.


Merry Christmas!
