Welcome back to all our staff and students for the new academic year. We hope that more activities will resume this year as we continue to follow Covid guidelines. It is great to see all students back after a summer where restrictions were lifted to a certain extent. Make sure to follow the school Website, Facebook and page for regular updates on school events and activities. A special welcome to all our 1st year students where we have no less than 4 sets of twins starting with us!!
