We seek to take this opportunity to remind you of our upcoming Celebration of Service Mass on July 11th This event was extremely well received and attended last year.
This is a celebration for all those involved in our diocesan school community. This event recognises those Headteachers who are retiring or leaving roles within the Diocese as well as members of their staff who you are invited to nominate for outstanding service to the school or college community. Please note that nominees (that is to say, those who are not departing Headteachers) should have served at least 10 years minimum within the organisation and be recognised for outstanding service which is over and above the nature of their employment.
The Mass, celebrated by Bishop John Wilson, will be taking place on 11th July 2019 at 17:30 in Westminster Cathedral and will be followed by a drinks reception at Cathedral View which is run by The Passage: http://passage.org.uk/
There is no charge for the event and those members of staff who are being recognised are welcome to bring a plus one, as well as their respective Headteacher and Chair of Governors.
I would be most grateful if you could please ensure your submission has been made by 31st May 2019
