100 days of Prep
Wow, can you believe that next Wednesday the Preps we will have reached 100 days in the classroom! To celebrate this amazing milestone a fun day filled with activities has been planned for next Wednesday 4th August. It would be fantastic for the Prep students to join in the excitement by coming to school dressed up as a 100 year old. Be as creative or as minimal as you wish. We can't wait to see what you all come up with.
