Football Match Reports

Football match versus St Joseph’s Catholic Primary. April 27th.  It is hard to imagine a school with less playground space than Heber. However, surrounded by the high-rise apartment blocks in Camberwell, near the Aylesbury Estate, lies St Joseph’s Catholic Primary.  Their playground felt like a swimming pool when the water has been emptied out.  They welcomed us in a very friendly way and we
