*Term 1*

On the first Wednesday of next term, 4th May, the Senior Syndicate would like to have a Star Wars Day at school. We are planning a number of different activities but would like to begin with a costume parade. We thought that if we let you know now, you could spend the holidays making or aquiring a costume for your child!

We look forward to seeing you at our Learning Expo on Tuesday at 9am!

Congratulations to Shelby and Zoe for a 1st equal in the School Poetry Competition!
