Hi Everyone , I hope you all had a good weekend. This is our last week of the school year. I am not going to assign  any work for this week. I would like people to use the time to take part in some fun activities like reading , sport, music ,art ,baking,  etc ! I would like to thank all pupils , parents and guardians  for  your hard work over the year and especially over the last three months in what was a challenging time for everyone. I look forward to seeing you all in September when hopefully things will be as close to normal again as possible.  Take care and enjoy the summer.
