A very warm welcome back after our mid year holidays and an extra special welcome to those families who are new to Thomas More this term as well as to our Gr. 7 Exchange student from Korea, who arrives this coming weekend and will be with us for two weeks. We do trust that you will all soon feel at home, and part of our family. Congratulations too, to Miss Logan on her marriage during the holiday, and a warm welcome back to Mrs de Leeuw. To our Thomas More family, all the best for the third term of 2017! I trust you and your family had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
