David McGuinness, our new Deputy Principal, and I would love to call out to your school, or organise a Zoom chat with pupils in 4th, 5th and 6th class before the end of November. If this is something you could facilitate, we would be delighted to do so.
We would also be very thankful if the above email and link could be forwarded on to all of your parents.
