A Very happy Birthday Surprise

Tamara's Birthday Surprise

Wow!  What a very lucky class Rimu are.  Today Tamara turns 11 and her mum brought in some birthday treats to help celebrate with the class.  We had pizza, fizzy, treats, cheese balls, crackers and of course scrumptious birthday cake.  We all felt very lucky to be able to have this birthday surprise treat.  Thank you Kyla!!!

The birthday girl and teacher selfie...always got to have at least one.

Glad Tamara's mum didn't over order pizza like somebody else we know.

Enjoying the special birthday surprise.
