The 2:00pm session

There will be a chance to view classroom displays and take part in interactive activities, ask questions and meet members of the school leadership team over suppers.

Techno Parents

Tonight at 7:3pm, staff, parents and students will meet online from their homes, using the virtual meeting software, elluminate as our school launch to Education Week. It will help streamline the ultranet for parents, as our school will be rolled out soon.
