P1 Graduation

08th June 2021

This year we have 42 children leaving us to go to school. We have all been very busy planning our Graduation party and ceremony which we will hold on Saturday 4th July. Our Graduation Group have been busy organising everything themselves. We can’t wait to wear our graduation gowns for our official photos and to have a real knees up at our party and ceremony. Marcia will be sending more information out as we continue to plan. Only our school leavers will be invited to attend (no other leavers) as this is a special and important next step for them.
