It’s that time again, what do we give up for lent? Not always an easy question. Some of us make it hard for ourselves and give up a lot and others tend to not really stretch the boundaries too far.

We started with a lovely Chapel Service, Father Richard using a spectacular science experiment to teach us the true meaning of Easter. Our grandparents got a glimpse of the time we spend in our school Chapel and enjoyed the entertainment our Gr 0 boys provided.
