Big Bertha - 30th March 2017

Today we were awarded the Big Bertha Easter Egg from the Queen's favourite chocolate makers for being a kind and caring school as nominated by a parent. As you can see the egg is as tall as one of our Class One children and each class had 2kg of dark chocolate to share. Yum yum.
