been in place for some time for an Education Day to raise awareness in the
community and encourage parents to send their children to school – particularly

The HT has

not work. The school is waiting for a

The HT will
prepare a proposal for a new source of solar energy - ?mKopa ? - so the TV can

be shown to encourage attendance and conservation.
