Thomas and Robbie – the adventure continues

Thomas and Robbie have just started at their new school called Avondale.  It’s an Australian school and the boys are really enjoying it.  They have two uniforms, with a special one for PE.  They are going to after schools clubs and are also learning French.  The boys have been celebrating the start of Chinese New Year and have bought a dragon costume and a tiger puppet.  They are going to send some photos of when they visit China town.  Keep enjoying your adventure boys!

A Great Success!

Thank you so much to everyone who came along to our Burns Celebration in the Village Hall.  It was a great evening and I would like to thank all the participants and the Parent Coucil for setting up the Hall in the afternoon.  James and Steven did a great job of hosting….Ant and Dec had better watch out!
