Our first day in Primary 1.

We met our teacher and teaching assistants. We made new friends and were delighted to see our old friends too! We had a tour of the school and said 'hello' to our brothers, sisters, cousins, older friends and staff. We learned new classroom rules and routines, enjoyed our healthy break and we played inside and out! What a busy day!
