Bubble Room News!

We are so happy with our new and improved Bubble Room!  Miss Herbert and Miss Cowley have done an AMAZING job to get it back looking great and we are thankful to the PTA for funding the revamp for us.  Please have a look at the photos to see the results.

This seems like the perfect opportunity to give this newly revamped space in our school a new name. We hope to organise a competition to let the children decide what this will be.  More details on this idea will be available soon!
