Laura Tobin visited our school for the third year in a row to judge the Photograpy and Poetry competition. Laura said ‘I really enjoyed visiting the school again & think the talent & creativity across all ages was very impressive. It was a hard task to choose the winners. All of the students were so attentive when listening to my weather talk and they had some fantastic questions that really had me thinking. Also it was great to have some wiling volunteers to present the weather with me. Hopefully one or two can fill in at 4am when I want a lie in!’
