Career Day Creativity at San Pedro RC School

San Pedro Roman Catholic School

The kids at San Pedro Roman Catholic School really got into the career day spirit yesterday.  Our Facebook newsfeed was bombarded with the cutest little kids dressed as grownups ever!  It was remarkable to see how much effort the children, and of course their dedicated parents, put into their career day ensembles.
