Yesterday we received a very large delivery – our new giant outdoor chess set! Thanks to all your wonderful donations and support of our Year 5/6 Fair last year, we were able to purchase this terrific new resource for students to use during break times in the playground as part of the Year 6 farewell gift. With so many keen chess players at our school, we look forward to many gigantic battles! Thank you to the Curry family for their great suggestion.
