The Holidays have Arrived

Well the holidays have arrived. We have been working very hard to complete videos, photos and posters for our MOA Awards.  

I hope you enjoy the posts that will be made over the holidays showing some of the work that we have been doing this term. The kids (and their teacher) are very proud of the work that they have completed and can't wait to share it with everyone.

I hope you all enjoy the holidays and I look forward to seeing the posts and comments that are made over the holidays.
