Petit Déjeuner

Our Sixth Year French class got a chance to enjoy their 'Petit Déjeuner Traditionnel' on Wednesday 19th May. It was great to be able to enjoy each other's company outside, all the while being mindful of our 'distanciation sociale'. Wishing all our Sixth Years 'Bonne Chance' over the coming weeks and every best wish for the future.

Again, we are urging the school community to get involved by walking, swimming, cycling or simply lighting a candle in support and remembrance.

Please continue to spread the message and offer hope by wearing a Darkness Into Light t-shirt, or anything yellow, and sharing your sunrise moment using #DILSunriseAppeal #DIL2020.
