This event took place on 19th September where all the PP1 geckos had invited the school to witness their learning.
Although there is so much reflection of learning happening on a daily basis, the facilitators of PP1 wanted to create an atmosphere to exhibit the geckos, learning. The largest gain from this event was that the facilitators and geckos worked together towards the same.
