Reach Free Site Visit – Written by Year 6

Today we visited the brand new Reach Free building site, where most of us will be joining in September. We looked inside the structure and also went up on the roof!

We all felt amazed because it was a once in a lifetime experience. We watched a video of what the current students attending the school thought about their current building and  how excited they are about the new building.

During our visit, we learnt that everyone makes mistakes. They shared some of their obstacles they faced and how perseverance enabled them to move forward.

We would like to thank everyone involved.

They are building not just a building. They are building our future!
