Welcome to Topaz Class!


It is so nice to see everyone happy and having fun in class! We seem to be getting the hang of our new routines and lessons and remembering our independent learning skills. Well done if you have had a reward buddy this week or earned a 'Star of the Week' certificate. We are really proud of your hard work!
