Nursery Toddle

On Wednesday 20th June, we held a Nursey Toddle with St. Augustine's Under 5's on the school field. The morning was a great success with children completing a challenging obstacle course on the school field and then families enjoying a variety of stalls in the Nursery garden afterwards. Our Sports Ambassadors from Year 6 were a great help alongside current and future pupils around the obstacle course. This event provided a perfect example of how the pupils of St Augustine’s school community work so well together.
