Primary 1 families

Under normal circumstances we would have invited our P1 families into the school to see the classrooms, meet the teacher and share what is being taught in Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing, unfortunately this is not possible. However, our P1 staff have prepared individual clips to share with you that we hope you find helpful!

Our pre-loved uniform service has been a great success so far, if you are interested in finding out more please click on the link below:
