Daily Update - 27th April
The teachers have loved seeing all the great work the children have been doing on SeeSaw and finding out how they're getting on. If you're having trouble accessing it, let us know. We'll be sending out codes for the extra activities for those who signed up for them over the next day or two.

“Let us try, if we can, to make the best use of this time: let us be generous. Let us help those in need in our neighbourhood. Let us look out for the loneliest people, perhaps by telephone or social networks. Let us pray to the Lord for those who are in difficulty .”
