This week in Division 12

It is Sports Day week! This will be a very fun-filled week for us. We get to show our support for each house team by wearing a different colour each day. Before Sports Day, we will be focusing on sportsmanship and what it looks like to be a good team member. We will have our How To books completed this week to share with our peers.
