Easter 2021 - Message from Ms. Harford "It's time for our Easter break and a good chance to have a nice rest before our final term of the school year. Families have worked really hard with their children during our recent lockdown. It truly takes a village! Well done everyone!Over the lockdown, through phone calls and emails I really feel that we were so well connected. I got to see some of you, when I had the opportunity to distribute school books and other materials to your homes! I hope that the return to school was good to you all, and to your children. Remember, we are all living through a pandemic and we're all doing the best we can! Finally, I must share our very sincere thanks to our volunteers from DNWAP who delivered school lunch packs to our families during the recent lockdown. We are so grateful to them for their help and support at this time!"
