Mini Olympics Success

Mini Olympics Success

Our first community event of the new academic year got off to a wonderful start on Saturday 26th September as families, past and present, joined us on King George’s field. The obstacle course proved a real hit with the children, trying out new experiences and old favourites like the space hoppers.
