And breathe… It’s the weekend!

Wow – what a week of change. Gomer Junior really is a school ‘learning today for the challenge of tomorrow.’ We do hope all our families are really proud of everything the children have achieved this week. A big THANK YOU to parents/carers for working so well with the school. Need help? Please just ask.
