UL was an awesome time. There were boys and girls. The boys had won the running title for LSP.  Everybody was super. By Anthony, 4th class


Our girl’s basketball team went to UL to compete against Salesians Primary School last Thursday. We were beaten 16-11. They were really tough but we played really well. We got 2nd place medals.

Thanks to the parents, grandparents, teachers, school staff and children for all the support.
