P-Y2 Group News

It's almost time to welcome the children back to the classroom, in the flesh! We know they're all looking forward to reconnecting and getting back into some classroom routines, and we are so excited to see them. It will be wonderful to have everyone together again as we settle back into school life.

We thought it would be nice to share some of the children's thoughts and feelings about heading back to school (and have a look at what the teachers are looking forward to too)!
