On December 12th, 2014 our school and community got together to celebrate the end of the first semester. Each class did a short presentation (a song, drama or story) and we enjoyed having some of our Friends and community members joining us for such joyful celebration.
Thanks to all the families and community members that participated in our 2014 Christmas Fair.
