Practical workshop on fine motor skills: 3 March 2017
Dear teachers/ parents
We will be presenting the follow- up workshop on Fine Motor Skills on 3 March 2017. This workshop will not give the theory on fine motor skills, as this was done during our workshop in September 2016. It will only revise the theory and focus more on practical sessions with regards to activities discussed at our previous workshop.
Teachers and parents can attend this practical, even if they missed the theoretical workshop but are reminded that we won’t be covering the theory in detail this time.
Please find the invitation and RSVP form on the attached documents for our practical workshop that will be held on Friday, 3 March 2017 at HAPPY DAYS PRE PRIMARY.
