Angus Lawson Community Primary School Graduation 2019

Unfortunately Robert became too ill to travel to Eswatini for graduation. I was fortunate enough to still go and attend both Angus & Mungo's celebrations. It was a special year since 2019 saw us welcome a new Headteacher to run the school & we are delighted to welcome Mr Hlatshwayo - hopefully when the world is back to normal he can continue with the plans he made pre COVID!

His legacy lives on in our comm
