Principal Update May 2021

It was so lovely to meet some of our families and Reception Class for September 2021 during my book deliveries! I really enjoyed delivering a book to each child and it was great to see that the children are just as excited about the school opening as I am. I hope your child enjoyed the story of Rainbow Fish, I cannot wait to fill our reading reef library with books and for our children to enjoy stories as a regular feature of their school day.  I am enjoying seeing photos of your
child showing responsibility by helping their sunflower to grow, sunflowers should have all arrived the last week so please let us know if you have not received any.
