Chair of Governor's September Welcome 2020

Chair of Governor’s Message        April 2020

Dear staff, families and friends of Windhill Primary School,

Who would have imagined six weeks ago that so many changes will have happened to our lives!

I would like to express my condolences on behalf of the Governing Body at Windhill, to those who have lost special people to Covid-19. This really is a very terrible time for many families. For those who are shielding loved ones who are poorly or vulnerable, our thanks for your courage and compassion. To those who are keyworkers of any description, including staff at school, our deepest gratitude. To those who are StayHomers, thank you for your patience and understanding.


Isn’t it lovely to see so many rainbows …maybe your family have got one (or more) in your windows I took this photo of the wonderful rainbows on the school gates. Well done if you helped to make this splendid display.

Here are the lyrics to the song, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” It’s a beautiful song. I am reminded of these words every time I see a rainbow that to reminds us to say a very big  “thank-you” to our keyworkers.

“Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby.


Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dream of
Dreams really do come true.


Someday, I wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me…”


One day we will be over the rainbow and things will slowly change back again.

One day, we will be over the rainbow and we will look forward to welcoming your children back to school but only when it is considered safe to do so.


In the meantime, we hope you and your families, your neighbours, your friends stay safe and keep well.

Lynn Mathers

Chair of Governors, on behalf of the Governing Body
