Executive Principal’s Blog – 14.1.22 ‘It’s Important to Think of Others’
Our mantra of continually thinking of others and ‘Having a Mind to be Kind’
is evidenced on a daily basis at BMS, often in the simple little things, such as picking up a piece of litter and putting it in the bin (even if you hadn’t dropped it) holding the door open for someone else, helping another student with their work, advising a younger student experiencing a challenging situation, or simply saying “Thank you for a great lesson”.All these little things, as well as many others, have taken place this week and that gratitude for the ‘sum of all the little things’ that adds up to be a significantly positive culture and ethos in our school was epitomsed by a genuine heartfelt ‘thank you’ from a parent of two of our students. The parent went out of her way to stop me the other morning to say how grateful she was to all staff for making Bushey Meads such a fantastic school.
Our kindness to others needs to continue, particularly in relation to one of our students who is receiving medical treatment which puts them at serious risk if they are exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. In some cases, exposure may require them to need urgent medication.
With that in mind, whilst your own child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation, you should let the school know immediately if your child is suspected of having chicken pox or measles, or if there is shingles in your household.
As a reminder, the best way to protect our children from measles is to ensure that they are immunised. Please discuss immunisation with your GP if your child has not already received it. The health and well-being of our student who is at risk, does depend on the co-operation of all other parents and we thank you in advance for your help.
