Senior Prep Notices 09 Sept 2016

dsc_0154Welcome Back: Grayston’s staff and students have once again started the term with lots of news to share, energy and enthusiasm. With one more term to go before the end of the year we encourage the children to reflect on their goals they had set for themselves at the beginning of the year. The children have been asked to consider what they may still need to do in order to achieve their goals and create special memories this term. By the end of the year we would love it if all our children could look back and say, “Wow, look what I did and look how far I’ve come!”
