Hello and Happy Friday 

We’ve had another fun week of learning – especially our P2 trip to Dynamic Earth!  

A special thank you all the adults that helped to make our trip possible; office staff, Mrs Murray, Miss Mulholland, Mrs Lee and Mr Millar – we really apricate your time and support. Also, a massive thank you and well done to all our P2 learners – we are so proud of them, such wonderful manners and enthusiasm on the day. They represented themselves and Buckstone so well – even the Dynamic Earth staff commented on how polite and well-mannered they are!
