MESSAGE FROM MRS PYE

Thank you so much for all your kind words, letters, cards and gifts. I am quite overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness and generosity. I also wish to say a big thank you to everyone who supports and works with Rushbury School in so many different ways. 

And a very heartfelt thank you to the children - you are all very special. Always remember to follow your dreams, help others and do your best. If you believe in yourself and the things you can do, then you can achieve great things. And along the way, remember to look out for one another, be kind and be a good friend. Do the best you can, do the right thing, be truthful, honest, caring, generous, supportive, loving and optimistic, for these are the things that bring joy.

                                                                             Thank you everyone so much. I will miss you all.
