Art Room Action 

We've had an action packed term.   The Art Room is looking great: It's full of colour and skilled work.  The students will be bringing home their workbooks either this week or the first week in term three.  These workbooks act as a report to parents.  We hope you'll enjoy seeing what your child has achieved.
