Parents Evening 4

Parents Evening

We had our first Parents Evening at Morgan’s new school earlier this week. A chance for us to meet his form teacher and see how they thought he was settling in. As far as we were concerned he seems to be loving it. Always keen to go to school in the mornings, loving the independence...
