A-Z Gratitude List
30 Jul 2021

During lockdown, our Middle School students were encouraged by their Pastoral teachers to take care of themselves not only physically, but mentally as well. As part of this, students were encouraged to write an A-Z list of all the things they are grateful for. Year 7 student, Annika F shared her heartwarming A-Z Gratitude List, which we are happy to share with our King's Community...
