Witches Walk

Updated: 1st Nov 2021

To say that there was huge excitement for the return of our annual Witches Walk was an understatement! Not only is it a day where both the children and staff dress up, but it’s a vital fundraiser for the school too. This year, there were three different walking routes with classes assigned to each. This ensured that everybody was safe and classes could socially distance. As always, there was an amazing atmosphere in school throughout the day. A big thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser and to all the children for getting into the Halloween spirit. (more…)
