Welcome to this weeks newsletter –

ETHOS: Check out the ECLIPSE pictures in THE GALLERY. We didn’t need the flash or the glasses, but the children had a great time learning about the cosmos, making balloon rockets and doing space art in the yard while listening to some spaced out music. Happy ‘Big Bang Day’, which is celebrated tomorrow.
