Primary School Stationery

The beginning of the year is a tough time for parents with exercise books to buy and so it is for the grandparents. If you would care to donate school exercise books/pencils or pens etc for the grandparents, a box will be placed in the foyer for these.

Grateful thanks from Louise, Helen, and Margaret.
