A MASSIVE thank you for all your help with our Awards Ceremony! I really couldn’t have done it without your help, patience & calming attitude! This school holds a huge piece of my heart. I’ve worked there for 11 years, my children attended the school, as did I (not that long ago!!) and I can say without a doubt, that we have never seen anything like that. The word proud isn’t nearly enough! So again, thank you!
