As we reach the end of yet another busy Term, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have given both to your children and to the school.  I would like to ask parents to help us make the new school Term start well.  Learners and staff have been involved in a wide range of events and activities and once again we have enjoyed and celebrated many successes.

I wish you all a peaceful and joyful winter holiday and look forward to seeing you all refreshed in July.
