See details about our Christmas Concert below.

News from the kitchen: Parents, the adults in charge of the kitchen just informed me that some students from our class have been coming extensively, asking for more food. This service is for emergencies only. In the last day, 5B children consumed 1 1/2 loaves of bread from the kitchen. Example of an emergency would be -  Soup spills in a lunch and the lunch is ruined. If your child makes their own lunch, please check it before they leave in the morning. I have told the students that if they have forgotten their lunch, the first step is to phone to see if a family member can deliver one. Thanks for your support!
