Celebrations were a day early this week, on Wednesday, as on Thursday a visitor talked about on-line safety to the whole school.  All pupils were reminded to check the lost property box for hats, scarves and gloves, there are lots in the box that need to be reunited with their owners.  The play equipment has been delivered and work has begun, but there is a long way to go until it is completed. Prayers were led by Olive & Amiah in 5T and the hymn, Everywhere Around Me was sung.
