Principal’s Comment 4th May 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you all managed to enjoy opportunities together over the holidays, and had a good and restorative time. Enjoyable as holidays are it is always good to welcome the students back, this time – appropriately, given the recent weather – smartly dressed in their winter uniforms.
