Hi Grade One Families!

Welcome back to school! A special welcome to our 4 new families! We welcome Amanda, Karsten, Sebbie & Rosie and their families to the St. Paul School Community. We hope you all had a relaxing summer vacation! We are so excited for a wonderful school year together, and we feel blessed to be your children’s teachers this year.

We will be sending an email through to the Grade 1 Families group. Please reply to the email, so that we can confirm that you are receiving them.
