This morning was spent over in the hall watching some learning in the Assembly which was lead by the year 2 classes. It was all about student agency!

Kobe – Dear God thanks for the plants and the people and everything Amen
Ekmann – Dear God thank you for the animals Amen
Navya – Dear God for the teachers Amen
Gurshaan – Dear God thank you for the insects Amen.
