Students arrived early and eager to meet up with their friends, find their new classrooms and meet their new teachers on the first day of school. There were changes in the play areas as well. More seated shading in the Junior Courts area was welcomed in the hot days and the new sandpit in the Junior Play area was an exciting addition. Finally the new playground shed was constructed to give easier access to play equipment. Thanks to P&F for instigating and funding these improvements and a special thanks to John Critchley for all his hard working in creating the sandpit.
