Numeracy Night at Falkland School

Our students and staff are working hard on our school goal to improve in the area of Numeracy.  We had approximately 55 people in attendance at our Numeracy Night on Thursday, January 30th.  District Principal Val Edgel worked with parents and students on games for practice at home.  Families in attendance were provided with manipulatives to take home.  Thanks to our Falkland Girl Guide group and leader, Dani, for making the delicious dinner and Rebecca McDougall for the tarts for dessert.
