Ihoho - Our Adopted Gorilla
You decided that as a class you would like to adopt a mountain gorilla - and each and every one of you pledged to give up one of your prizes that you will earn from collecting 'dojos'. I am so very proud of you all! Every week one of you will have the opportunity to take our Ihoho soft toy home. We will continue to receive newsletters about Ihoho.
My door is always open so please feel free to make an appointment and chat about your child's learning.
Thank you to all parents for your continued support.
