Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year


Well the school year has now come to an end and sadly I part with an absolutely fabulous group of learners. At the beginning of the year I asked them what their job was, their answer…. To be the best learners we can be. They certainly worked hard and achieved that goal. I am very proud of them indeed and want to thank them for their efforts.


I was taken aback in the last week when a group of parents descended in the room bearing gifts. I was humbled by their generosity and thoughtfulness and send a heartfelt thank you to you all. I get rewarded each year by the growth the children make in their learning and certainly do not expect gifts. I was indeed stunned by this, brought forth even more tears to my eyes, you have my sincere gratitude.  I now have an adventure to seek out Crux RA 12h 22m 28s D-58° 21′ now proudly named Ellen, goodness a star, I am honoured you guys are awesome.

So goodbye my superstars and all the best for your next learning adventures.
