Parent and Staff Welcome Reception
We hope that everyone who attended found the evening enjoyable and walked away with a few new friends!
The PTA would like to acknowledge the hard working people behind the scenes who made the evening a great success. We would like to thank Sarah Davies, Helen Brown and the Newcomers Committee headed by Sehrish Haq. Thank you to the members of the Committee for ensuring all was taken care of including the volunteer bar staff!
Thanks to Team Peru for offering their babysitting services and serving the food. Thanks to the High School Music department especially Darren Howard for sharing the musical talents of Petrina Danardatu, Kvitka Perehinets and SiMing Meng with us.
Of course, the evening was only made possible by the dedication of the staff at school namely the Maintenance (headed by Zlatko) and IT departments. So thank you for always supporting us!
We look forward to future events!
