From our opening ceremony on Monday morning with a special guest appearance from our Indian Dancers, AKA the Mums! to the sights, sounds and delicious smells of the Global Café. Our classrooms have come to life as many and varied places across our globe and the range of facts, figures and brilliant information both gathered and presented has been amazing. Sincere thanks to all involved in making this week so memorable for our students and we hope for you also the parents. Thank you for joining us throughout the week and in particular for supporting our Global Café on Tuesday and Wednesday and the fabulous parades today.
