Well, I guess we pretty much know by now, as we did at 7.30am, that today is the day before Christmas Eve. It's like living with two town criers. You hear the really important things over and over.

Back to the party. It was at the incredibly gorgeous Costley-White Rosedale home.…Continue

The Winter Fair is the main fund-raiser of our school here. But more importantly it is a fantastic community spirit builder. It's been crazy busy but we finally did it. What a stunning day.
Each class room is transformed into a wondrous new world.
