Greg's Message

Dear Parents and Friends of St Anne’s

Four bat tennis nets have just arrived at school - they were used by our students for the first time today. We are most grateful to our wonderful Parents and Friends Association for donating the money to pay for the nets. They are certain to be a most popular addition to our playground.

I hope that our Greek Orthodox families enjoyed their Easter Sunday.

I trust that all mothers connected with the St Anne’s community have a wonderful Mothers Day on Sunday - you certainly deserve it!
