FRENCH CLUB – looking hopeful
After-school French lessons. At present we have had an indication of interest from a tutor who would be able to take a one-hour lesson on Fridays after school at John Colet: the cost would be around $12 per child. At present we have four students and seek more – expressions of interest should be sent to Mrs. Donald as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org , indicating the level of the child Beginner or Intermediate.

Thank you to those parents who were able to come to the Years 1 and 2 Morning Tea with the Headmaster. It was well attended and very chatty . It’s a day the teachers also enjoy because there are always leftovers of Mrs. Moor’s delicious food.
