Week 10

Thank you to all those parents and family members who joined us for Hot Cross Buns and a peek at the wonderful work that is on display in the classrooms. Special thanks to the Year 1 parents who sent in so many ‘artefacts’ and special family heirlooms. The museums in each of the Year 1 rooms were fascinating. Our world has certainly changed rapidly in recent years.

Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday, as we take time to also reflect on the meaning of Easter.
