A celebration of Hope Community Mothers 

On Friday 29th March the whole school came together to celebrate and give thanks to our Hope Community Mothers. Each class had prepared a poem, a reflective piece of writing or a song to express how they felt about their Mums. Thanks to Grape, our Mandarin teacher, the children even told their mothers, in Mandarin, that they loved them. Mothers were then treated to a cup of tea and cake, by the Seeds of Hope, the school's PTA group. See the Newsflash from 29 03 2019 for photographs.
