News from the PRE-PRIMARY

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived, time has flown away so quickly.

The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. So many things have been accomplished this year. Our students have been involved in an extraordinary number of activities and of course, we should not forget the tremendous amount of learning which has taken place during the year. Throughout all these activities our students have demonstrated great character.
