Friday

Our final day of Activate has been lots of fun! We've had water games in the Prep and a Knock Out Party in the Pre-Prep, as well as many varied activities. Hopefully some of you were able to take a look at the Activate video that was recorded and produced by Mr Woods this week, which reflects the incredibly happy time that the children have enjoyed. I would like to thank all the staff for their amazing dedication and you, the parents for supporting Activate. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year and we wish you all an enjoyable and hopefully sunny August!
