Thank you to all families for their perseverance this week and for ensuring that students were in college, properly dressed and ready for learning. My thanks also to all staff who have ensured OGC has been safe and productive, when open, and those staff who live further afield, especially in Southsea, Horsham, Brighton, Hove and Chichester who have all managed to get into work every day even after some difficult journeys. The premises team have done a great job this week in keeping the site safe.

Thanks also to transport teams for their work in getting students to college sensibly and safely.

All of this is much appreciated and we can be thankful we have not seen the horrific conditions that many parts of the country have experienced.

Hopefully it will warm up now and we can get on with spring and the lighter days.

I hope you all have a good, warm and safe weekend.
