It was New Uniform Day (NUD) once again in January – giving polo shirts to new pupils or replacing tattered ones for our old ones. The older children also got navy blue trousers or skirts. And very smart they look too.
The well turned out pupils are walking advertisements for the school. We always have new parents arrive the day following NUD who saw our pupils walking home and want their own child to join our gang.
Sometimes a gentle (and very colourful) reminder that school has begun is all it takes.
