Welcome Back!

Dear Boys and Girls

 

I hope you are all enjoying the last few days of your holidays.  I am counting down the days to our return and I just cannot wait to see you all.  I am so excited. 

 

In our classroom this year we will have Ms St Clair and Mrs Mawhinney helping out. At the minute we are very busy in school preparing the classroom and outdoor area for your return.  They look amazing. 

 

School will be a little bit different this year but I know it will be just as much fun.  Together we can make our class a happy place full of fun, laughter and play. 

 

See you soon

 

Mrs McMeekin, Mrs Mawhinney and Ms St.Clair

We can't wait to see you!
