Valentine’s Day in Grade 7

The Grade 7’s enjoyed an amazing day of team sport on Valentine’s day. Plenty of oxygen to the brain and lots of fun. We then enjoyed a beautiful, romantic movie. The last hour was spent cooling off in the pool. The 2012 Grade 7’s are a great group of learners who thoroughly enjoy working together.
