Today we joined with Reception Class to celebrate Mission Day. We did a scavenger hunt to search for letters that we turn had to unscramble. They spelled out ‘Persevere with God’. We also played some games with our buddies and had lots of fun. We also decorated some crosses which were later blessed by Father Neil.
