Our next fundraiser is our annual school calendar for 2019. Photos will be taken on the 16th November. Each class has a theme (listed below) and children may dress accordingly on that day, if you wish.
We want to emphasise that there should be no cost to any family for the dress up. We encourage children to use their imagination, be creative or even wear their normal clothes and bring a prop.
