Farewell to Dave

Our Last Bible in Schools Lesson

Today we had our last Bible in Schools session with our lovely teacher Dave.  Dave has come to see us each Friday and shared stories from the Bible.  
Today we made Christmas cake to send to the people of Kaikoura as they deal with the aftermath of the recent devastating earthquakes.  
We will miss Dave and hope that we will see him again.
Many hands make light work.

Happy mixing.

A sneaky shot of Dave.

Rimu Class say see you again to Dave.
