The power of tea.

This morning the 6th year students gathered together for a cup of tea and a chat.
Organised by the 6th year prefect team and Ms Clarke the sixth years took time to chat and connect in with each other before classes come to an end and exams begin. A huge thanks to Attracta who made all the tea and coffee for them. There were smiles all around as students returned to class:
“ …..this simple coffee morning meant a lot because it gave me a chance to relax with my friends during this very busy time, time to be together before the exams begin.”
