GCSE Japanese result

Wooo! I met up with my friends from Japanese at CGSB (my school) a couple of hours ago today to collect our GCSE Japanese results and open them together. Everyone there got A*s!! I’m glad these two years have come out just as fruitful academically as they have been building friendships *^_^*.
