Dear Parents,

It has been a pleasure to welcome the students back to school after the break and to see them embracing the opportunity to learn in real classrooms. There is a real buzz in school and the students really want to be here. We have also managed to run an outstanding Year 7 Achdut trip for the boys which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Now that London is moving to Covid Tier 2 over this weekend, I am writing to remind you about the importance of following the Government advice in order to try to slow the spread of the virus. Our aim is to keep the schools open to the very best of our ability. This means that we are asking for parents and students to play their part in minimising infection spread: if you attend or promote gatherings indoors where households are mixing, you are putting your family and others at serious risk. Please help us to keep the schools open and to keep the community safe.

As we start again with Sefer Beraishit, it is worth noting that the entire sefer is replete with examples of our Avot behaving in an altruistic fashion and thinking about others. This must be our mantra during these very challenging times.

Wishing you a safe and peaceful Shabbat,


Mrs D Lebrett
Hasmonean High School for Boys
