My son’s progress this year, under the guidance and support from his teacher, has been phenomenal and this shows in the grades he is achieving. We are extremely proud and pleased with my son’s progress and we would like to thank the staff at school for all their help, guidance and support which help the children to achieve such high goals. Thank you. July 2013.
