  1. I liked learning about the Venn Diagram. I also liked hearing the kids from Tipperary Station School speak and answer our questions.
    My Dad went to a school that only had 1 teacher and less than 14 kids from prep to grade 6. The school was Modella Primary School.

    • I liked the Venn Diagram too, Max! My dad had 14 pupils in grade 1 and about 12 in grade 2.
