Mr Farrell and Miss Jones found it too difficult to choose two children for certificates this week because it has been such a good week (that is great to hear). So they asked the class to vote for who they thought deserved special recognition and they chose:
Obosa, because he has put so much effort in to his work this week;
and Jacob who has been especially helpful to adults.
