Today was our last library borrowing session for the year! If you have any books at home please bring them to be returned next week 🙂
Today, we each designed our own symbol, something that represented who we are, to paint on the school ‘river’ pathway. A group of us then painted our symbols. We will continue to do this over the next week. You will find our symbols on the river, near the gate, at the entrance of our wonderful school!
