Winter Wizard Winter Wizard

The Winter Wizard promotion has now come to an end and the Wizard is taking a much-deserved break over spring. He had so much fun seeing all your fantastic competition entries.

The move into Level 3 in the second week of the promotion meant that Walking School Buses couldn’t operate but it was great to see children still participating in the weekly competitions from their family bubbles.
