Welcome to our guestbook which invites people from around the World to drop by and leave comments for our staff and children to read.


G'day from 5R, a year 5 class at Sherwood State School in Brisbane on the east coast of Australia. It's the first day of summer here, heading for a top of 33 degrees Celsius (91 degrees Fahrenheit) with a possible thunderstorm this afternoon. We've only got nine days left before our summer holidays (six weeks) so it's time for awards and celebrations... We hope you're having fun in the lead-up to Xmas. You can get in touch with us via

Hello Ivy Chimneys! I am so excited to see what is behind each window on your advent calendar this year. I'm sure you have all been very creative with your ideas. I am in the south of Thailand teaching in a small school with only 150 pupils. They are age 13 to 17. The children here don't have advent calendars and don't celebrate Christmas but I will be sharing your work with them. I bet you are all busy practising your Christmas plays and learning songs. I will miss seeing you all shine on the stage but I know you will all be amazing! 

I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas!

Love Miss Snailham x
