House Captains Fight Back!

Big Thank You!

A message from Charity worker- Mari Davis:

I thought you would be excited to see the little children in their new shoes all bought by the money raised from your Odd Shoes day at school.

So we bought 28 pairs of shoes for 28 children. These are not all the children. Looks like about 21 of them.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU so very much and really do appreciate your work, the teachers and that of your children and parents too.

Invitation from MLA Bragger

MLA Bragger invited School Council to Gilbert House for one of their School Council Meetings to share 'The Islands Plan.'

School Council were great ambassadors for our school and asked questions of MLA Bragger and answered his questions, showing great understanding and respect for the Falkland Islands in their answers.
