2020 School Tour with a Difference!!

May is always the month for school tours at Wandesforde! Unfortunately we are unable to have a school tour this year, however we thought you might like to take a virtual school tour at the suggested websites below! Even though it’s not going to be the same without your friends, your teachers, the bus journey and the school tour treats, it will keep you entertained while you stay at home. So sit back, get a little treat and enjoy the tours we have in store for you!!

    Thank you Jan for your feedback. I really enjoyed the virtual tour of Number 29 and the Anne Frank Museum tour too! It’s definitely a school tour with a difference for us all this year but it’s nice to mark it in some way πŸ™‚
