Last term we held our annual Secondary School evening, where we invite our current Year 5 and 6 children to meet representatives from high schools from the local area.  As part of the evening we also invite our FPPS alumni to come and talk to the children about their experiences of transitioning from primary school into high school.  We caught up with the Year 7's to talk about their experiences.

This week, we meet Micah.
