Well done! We are all so proud of you!

 

 

Update: On 5th of December, we attended the second round of the competition and the maths team competed extremely well!

 

On the 28th of December, i received the following email from Explore Learning:

 

"Unfortunately Holy Rosary were not successful in making it to the final! We would like to congratulate all of the children who took part as only the top 5 schools in the whole country got to the final, so making the regional finals is amazing! We loved having you all and we look forward to our celebration assembly.
 
Best wishes for next year!"

 

 

 

WELL DONE HOLY ROSARY!

I am confident that this will improve even more as the year goes on!
