    The end of term has arrived. I know it is a short term but it certainly has flown by. I am continually amazed by the new students here and how well they have settled in and how respectful and caring the older children have been towards their younger peers, who at times can become unsettled in the new environment. I would also like to acknowledge the wonderful job all the staff have done this term having settled their students into a working routine. We now have a new committee.
