Welcome to Term 1!

What an amazing day we’ve had with the students of 5/6NP and 5/6ND. Students have had a chance to get to know each other and their teachers. ¬†Stationery has been given out to the students. Please ensure all items are labeled and students understand it is their responsibility to keep their items in their pencil case and return it to and from home each day.

Our class timetable:

Mondays – Spanish and Music lesson

Tuesdays – Physical Education lesson (students to wear the school sports uniform)

Thursdays – Library borrowing day

Please feel free to contact us via email if you have anything you need to discuss with us:
