The girls spoke on a wide range of topics from human rights to health issues. Well done to the girls and their mentors Mrs Evelyn Simons and Mr Daniel Veale.
Thank you to all the students who came in to help out on Open Night and make it such a success. They helped out in all departments and were the stars of the night. It was good to see such a big turnout of visitors and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We must also say a big thank you to the Parents’ council who, once again, pulled out all the stops and provided the delicious refreshments
