Good Afternoon

As some of you may be aware a group of S3 students are heading off to Zambia and Botswana in June-July 2021 on an expedition. I have heard rumblings that some people were wishing they had signed up. There are still places available for this exciting opportunity if anyone in S3 is interested.

You can contact me at the school or if you are coming to the S3 Parents Evening on Wednesday next week there will be a Zambia stand and you can find out more then.
