Grandparents Day

Just a reminder that on Grandparents Day in the Junior School (19 June) all families will have the opportunity to purchase a book for the library. A memorial bookplate will be placed in the book and the grandchildren can borrow to read as a family. Cash or card welcome.

Happy Reading.
