Bring Your Parents to School Day 2019

A massive thank you to our two classes of parents (60 parents) who came back to join us for a whole day of “S1” before the holidays.  I have attached a flavour of the feedback received – thanks for sharing your thoughts.  I also shared individual feedback about lessons with teachers who taught our classes. We look forward to welcoming our next classes (next year) as part of the transition process for parents of S1 pupils.
