Year 7 News

Welcome back to school! Returning to school after the lockdown, students have settled back into their classrooms and have enjoyed reconnecting with their friends and teachers. It has been an opportunity to reset, reconnect and reflect on how our lives have changed over the last few months and sharing stories and photos of life in our “Bubbles”. We feel we actually know our students even better through their sharing of their life beyond school during these times.
