A word about our photo galleries

A word about our photo galleries You may have noticed recently that many of the photo albums on our Photo Galleries page disappeared for a while. That was due to a change at FlickR, which hosts our galleries, moving from free unlimited storage to a fee-based model. We have now upgraded our FlickR account and are in the process of restoring ALL our albums, containing thousands of photos from around our schools. Please feel free to download and print any photos you find on our galleries page. These are YOUR photos and we hope you enjoy seeing them, saving them and sharing them!
