Our school values

Introducing Shaggy!

Shaggy was dumped by some heartless people at our school over the Christmas holidays where he lived in the culvert by the road.  Thanks to some lovely community members who fed him and patted him, he is now right at home living with us and we all love having him here. 


Not sure about Whistle though.  She is a tad put out that she has competition!!

PS:  He is a gorgeous cat (not normally grumpy like he looks in the photo!!)
