There is great excitement receiving return mail, seeing the different places through Flat Stanley’s eyes, learning all about the places he visits and where they are on the map.
Best of luck to our City Sports team who will be participating in this years competition in MTU tomorrow the 1st of June. They have put a great effort into their training and will do us all very proud tomorrow.
