Mrs Kaiser’s Farewell Assembly
Although we have not yet had this event as we write this thanks, I think it would be amiss if we did not send our thanks to all the parents for their support and especially to our PTA parents for serving tea. The VP family effort contributed to a wonderful tribute to Mrs Kaiser.
