Catch Up Meeting on Zoom
We have arranged a short meeting for children in Class Twelve to have the opportunity to have a quick catch up with their friends and teacher. The meeting will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 15th July. We hope that you will be able to join us. The ID code and password will be sent in a text message to all parents. In order to help safeguard all of the people involved, we ask that all parents make it known to the teacher that they are in the room at the start of the meeting. Parents do not need to remain on camera if they choose not to.
