End of An Era

Hello  Everyone,

As the school year in Melbourne Australia has come to an end, so has my role in my current school.

In 2016 I am moving on to a different school and will be working in a different role. I will still be using technology but in a whole new and different way.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday and relaxing time with your family and friends.

Raff 🙂
