Principal’s Message

Dear HIS Community

This may not be so surprising, but we had a quiet week at school. Thank you for all the support over the week as we experimented with distance learning and we are looking forward to seeing everyone back on the 16th. As we head into the spring break, I thought that this TED Talk may provide a great idea for a project. If anyone has a go, please let me know. It would be a wonderful project to follow in the Crane.

Kind regards
