Lida, Mila and Ruslana
Every person at our school plays an important role. However, without these three women, our school wouldn't run as smoothly as it does. They ensure our school remains clean and tidy throughout each day, and make sure all the children and staff have full tummies. We appreciate their hard work and contributions to our community.
