Comment from the Principal
We are gratified that the inspection report has given a true reflection of the very good education that we strive to deliver. The evidence is that our striving is not in vain. I would encourage all parents to read the entire report.
Finally, I would comment that as teachers, we are grateful for the very good support that we receive from parents as we work hard to do our best for your children!
