What our students say

I have been offered and have just accepted a 6-month contract teaching junior science, junior maths, senior (hopefully biology), and junior literacy and numeracy.

I am really stoked and really want to thank you for all the opportunities I've had to learn and for all your encouragement, guidance and feedback this year. What a year 2015 has been!
