Term 2 Week 2 update

Hello everyone,

Another week has flown as we begin to delve deeper into our Topics for this term. This week the students have spent some of their time preparing for their assembly, which will take place on Monday and also getting ready for the Seollal school celebrations, which will take place on Tuesday. The highlight of this week was, of course, Silly Hat day. I was very happy to see the entire class participate in this and every hat looked amazing, well done to Aki, who was voted the winner of the best hat.
