Opening Celebration

In the morning......

The morning programme was all about the children.  Our special and inspirational visitors spent the morning talking to the children about their achievements, how they got there and the hurdles they have had to overcome.

The children were truely inspired and understood that we all come across problems we have to overcome but know they can tackle these.  Children, and staff, all want to strive to be the best they  possibly can.
