This week, one Year 9 class thanked Shona for all the work she does for our school.  The class was divided into groups and each group came up with a way to say thank you with the the theme being “Turtles” as Shona has a beloved pet turtle, Snappy.  The
gifts included cupcakes and chocolate, a turtle themed card with messages from the students and a paddling pool for Snappy to play in.




The Rap Masters, students aka K-Dogg, H-Bomb, Lil’ Lemon, released their rap “Shona Rap”.



Another group compiled thank you messages into the video below.
