This is what DREAMS are made of!

Last week saw our Sunbirdies take to the stage for what must be one of the most anticipated events in our pre-school calendar – the Grade R assembly! After several weeks of learning songs, rehearsing actions, memorising lines, practicing lead-in and lead-out drills and planning outfits, our precious pre-schoolers were ready to SHINE… and shine they most certainly did!  [Read More…]
