EDUCATIONAL TRIP TO AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND
A group of ten Primary 4 and Primary 5 pupils, together with three teachers, flew to Auckland, New Zealand for an educational trip from 9 to14 November 2012.

This helped broaden their experiences and deepen their language learning in a native English-speaking environment.
