School is finished, the last bell rung
Students skipped out of the gate, I saw some run
“Christmas is coming” is squealed, “Yay!” shout some
It’s on the horizon for everyone.
Staff are convened excitedly in the hall
Excitement is brewing, Secret Santa gifts for all
Thank yous, well done, goodbyes for some
Then others drive carefully to the pub for a swift one.
Decorations taken down, recycle bins full
Classrooms cooling down, from all this terms learning and fun
The site staff are coming to lock learning spaces down
to help all school staff completely wind down!
A good rest, recharge and much sleep is required
To help amazing lead learners continue to inspire
Those learners we love whose futures we shape
To make our world a much better place.
So as classrooms are locked and alarms are set
All valuables locked away, our families and friends are met
Enjoy this break, take time to reflect
To ensure we come back fighting fit and are just almost perfect.
