Our Book Fair continues in the school hall on Monday, May 21st and Tuesday, May 22nd. A book fair is essentially a pop up book shop in the school. It gives parents an opportunity to purchase good quality reading material for their children. Every book sold at the Fair helps get free books for our school. It provides a great way for us to update our school library or get new sets of class novels. Your support would be very much appreciated. Parents can visit the book fair at 1.40 or 2.40pm on May 21st or 22nd. For more on our book fair click here.
