The Trust at the heart of the Batley community
This week our Trust family of schools have been remembering those who lost their lives or were injured, and those who lost loved ones, in order for us to live life as we know it and for us to experience the freedoms we have today. We recognise they gave their tomorrows for our today.
Currently we are seeing troubling times around the world. Our schools are supporting the humanitarian crisis by raising money for Save the Children and Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) and we thank all our young people for their mature approach, and for being proactive in helping others less fortunate than themselves. Our young people know the importance of community, and that community makes us. The unity in community is crucial; our school councils and student leadership groups have demonstrated some wonderful social action projects to ensure we do all we can to help others.
We wish those celebrating Diwali this weekend a Happy Diwali. The festival of lights celebrates new beginnings, light over darkness, and hope over despair. On this theme, we reflect on the words of the poet Amanda Gorman; "For there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."
