celebrated their learning with an old fashioned school day. Students
dressed in old fashioned clothing, played old fashioned games and even read
john and betty. For writing they used chalk and blackboards. We finished the
day with some songs and
hand clapping outside.
Thank you to the parents
for their help and
support this term.!
