Chinese New Year Celebrations

You are welcome to join us for our Chinese New Year celebrations at Abacus. The children will be performing a few Chinese songs to celebrate the new year. Am session parents are welcome to join us on Wednesday 14th February at 10.15 am and the Pm parents at 2.15 pm.

K1 Arts Trips and Art Exhibition

Thank-you to those parents who joined us for the K1 arts trips, the children had a lovely day out and hopefully learned to appreciate some new art forms on their excursions. The art unit is going so well we have decided to give the children more time to work with their clay and canvasses before the art exhibition. Therefore we have moved the art exhibition until after Easter. The new date for the exhibition will be Friday 11th May.
