Full Disclosure

I'm away from Wellington as I write this week's newsletter, using a laptop which I hate, so if there are more mistakes than usual, that's the reason. Plus being in holiday mode doesn't help. On the plus side - it'll be short. Anyway onwards .....

School Fleeces

Some fleeces may have gone home with the wrong owners.

Can you please check the fleeces that you have at home to ensure that they have your child's name on them.
