FJS Update - 1st April

Good afternoon Friends, 


I hope you are all well and managing to successfully balance your days. 


It was lovely to see so many of you Zoom-in to yoga with Josie yesterday afternoon; we certainly enjoyed our session and are looking forward to next week! More information will be made available next Monday. 


In theory next week sees the beginning of the Easter holidays and as such, from Monday, our staff will not be posting daily Seesaw updates. They are all working on rota to support our key worker families and will continue to do so throughout most of the holiday period but we felt they (and possibly you) needed a break. I will continue to write a daily email update and do story time (viewing figures are settling in the mid-50’s so thank you to the hardcore J). 


As part of my daily email I set a challenge, these are voluntary and open to any and all. It was lovely to see so many self-portraits arrive in the admin@ email yesterday and we will continue to take them and your egg photos until 2pm tomorrow after which we will close those two challenges. The challenges will continue over Easter.


As for our daily story time, I thought you might like to contribute a short story of your own and I will endeavour to somehow edit into our ‘broadcast’. I’ve yet to work out how you could send such a large file in to me but are there any IT techs out there that may have a solution?


Our challenge for today; we have been contacted by Andrea Hone, Patient and Carer Experience and Wellbeing Nurse at Watford General Hospital. Andrea has asked if our children would write letters of thanks to the nurses and medical staff at Watford General Hospital. Watford Football Club are involved and have offered to make a display of all the letters received. The Chief Executive of Watford Hospital Trust is in support and we understand that St Albans and Hemel hospitals are now also on board.  The brief is no more than a side of A4 and a message of inspiration and thanks to keep the staff going as they care for those that are very sick.  If you do want to do this, letters should be emailed to:

Many thanks, stay safe and well.
