Our second GEM Day of the year was a great success. Children learnt about what sort of jobs are available, the skills they need and how to get there. It was a really interesting day. Classes focussed on specific work places, such as hospitals and shopping centres, with some children even making their own cardboard models of places to work! Here is a short video of some of the highlights from the day:

As you are aware, Ramadan has started this week so we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our families Ramadan Mubarak. Below is a letter that we sent out on Monday with some information about the provision available for children who are fasting.

All the best during this very special time.
