On Friday 15th September the grade 1/2's had a great dinner at school. We had chips and delicious pizza. When we were mid-way through our fruit Mrs McIntosh called us over to Chandler Hall to see the Amazing Danny the Magician. He was extremely funny. Danny turned a white balloon into a remote control bird. Afterwards we all ate chocolate coated ice cream. The ice cream was delicious. Then the grade 1's went home.
