"We've been learning all about Reggae music in Year 3. I didn't know anything about the genre before but I love it now! The song 'Three Little Birds' makes me feel happy and like everything will be alright!" - Maggie


"In choir, we've learned all about singing in harmony with each other, singing in a round and how to sing different parts as a group." - Laila, Class 2
