On Friday, September 5th the Junior School community gathered for a Welcome Back barbeque. Over 500 people, including parents, grandparents, children and teachers gathered to celebrate the beginning of the new school year and to welcome the 61 new students and their families to the community. It was a sunny evening with time to play, visit and enjoy good food — a wonderful start to the year.
Emily in Grade 2 described it this way:
Last Friday there was a barbeque. It was lots of fun. There was lots of food and drinks. The children played together and the grown-ups chatted. There were parachutes — one space parachute and two rainbow coloured ones. It was a really great barbeque!
