Good evening and welcome to week 2.  Hopefully you enjoyed the glorious weather over the weekend!

As you may be aware, Mr Lee is unwell and recuperating at home at the moment. Please keep him in your thoughts as he recovers.  We look forward to seeing him back at school very soon. We made get well soon cards for him Friday, which were delivered over the weekend. From all accounts he was VERY appreciative!
