Our "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" Exhibition is slowly coming together, as all of our young students have been putting in extra hours to finish off their works of art to show off. I am thrilled with their commitment and enthusiasm in participating in our first exhibition and would like to thank all parents/carers for their understanding and support. :-)
