Honouring Assembly for Volunteers to our school

Time: 9.10am – 10.30am
Our school has been blessed by the help of numerous volunteers this year. These people add richness to your child's learning and save our school large amounts of money which keeps your fees down.

As a community we want to thank them for their support. Please come if you can to honour these people.

Please send a cake or biscuits to school on Thursday. If we all make something, each volunteer can receive a gift from our community.
