Wellbeing Wednesday

This week we will be taking some time to reflect upon the past year and all that we have achieved together and as individuals during a global pandemic and two national lockdowns. We will all be creating some collaborative art to display around the school. This will remind us of all the positives we were able to draw out of such a challenging year. As a school we will be planting Irises to help us remember our incredible resilience. – Go Team Gomer!
