International Women’s Day

On Wednesday, it was International Women’s Day. There were numerous discussions on how inspirational women have inspired the children and adults in school –  from mums, grandmas to Nadia Comaneci!

Monday Morning Super Swim!

Our talented swimmers once again performed brilliantly in the swimming City wide finals! With each swimmer trying their very best in a range of strokes, front crawl, breaststroke and backstroke in both individual and relay races, they swam to success.

St.John’s Siberia !

This morning the school was caught in a mini blizzard, blanketing the school in snow! Even though it was very exciting, the children entered the school in a sensible safe fashion, well done! Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the snow’s going to last for long!
