Later in the week the children went for a walk around the school, managing the staircases really well and discovering the offices and dining room. Transition children have had lots of fun learning about places and people in Australia this week, have created a beautiful display of their paintings of Uluru (Ayres Rock), talked about the Aboriginal people, decorating their own faces with Aboriginal designs, and making fairy bread, a 1920’s Australian children’s party food.

We have our first Open Morning of the year for prospective parents on Friday 27th so thank you in advance for your recommendations.
