Open Afternoons

Every term we hold an Open Afternoon where parents and families are invited into school and their child shares their 'Learning Journey' from that term with them. 


It is a wonderful afternoon and an opportunity to collectively celebrate children's success each term.


Below are photographs and comments from our latest Open Afternoons:
