Finally, thank you to all the adults who made the day successful. We really appreciate the various ways that you supported us, such as making sure your child was at school by 7:45am, providing transport and showing enthusiasm for the excellent performances both by your child and by other children. An extra big thank you to Kieron who spent the whole day at the long jump pit so we didn't need to enlist the help of parents. We are very grateful.
