Welcome Back

I don’t think my daughter could have been more excited about coming back to school. You would think it was her birthday or Xmas today and then to arrive to the big welcome back banner and the teachers all showing how pleased they were to see them all was the cherry on the cake! What a lovely way to start! Well done everyone and thank you!
