Year 5 are having 10 workshops with mags from London school of Samba, organised by Merton Music Foundation. This presentation is designed to give them some background information and context.

  • I can definitely recommend a website that really helped me with my essay. I found out it was due the day before I had to submit it. Went into full-on panic mode. Worst experience of my senior year by far. It’s called ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐. The quality of the writing is passable but the completion rate is super quick. You get to pick your own writer to do your stuff and that’s also a big bonus.
