Kakatsitsi Master Drummers

The pupils enjoyed a masterclass from our visiting Ghanaian drummers. After a very entertaining performance, all P1-7 pupils enjoyed two workshops: where they learnt some traditional drum beats and; where they learnt some traditional dances. It really was a great morning, made all the better for having Co’path pupils and staff with us – including the nursery!

P7s to Kingswood

We bid farewell to our Primary 7s on Wednesday as they set off for Kingswood. We look forward to welcoming them back on Friday and hearing their news.

Plans for August

Letters we sent out this week sharing class teacher allocation for August. On Thursday evening, we held an information evening for parents about the new school session. If you have not received any of this information, please get in touch with us.
