6. Mum’s are always right

Finally here’s a quote from one of the mum’s of a Year 10 student.
His opportunity within your school for enrichment with his participation in F1 in schools has been immeasurable. He has gladly stopped back after school hours to get ready for their competitions and done work at home, his confidence has come a long way from where he was and again it’s down to your teachers that need special thanks and credit, their enthusiasm and dedication is second to one.
