Year 6

It looks like we have a full house for Perranporth 2024! The itinerary for the trip is taking shape and, this week, I was very pleased to book tickets for the school to see The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle at the Minack Theatre. The school has seen the theatre company, Illyria, several times over the years - they are brilliant!
