"I attended Year 12 Parent Teacher night and was absolutely amazed at the dedication and enthusiasm of the teachers that I saw motivating and encouraging my daugther to work hard and achieve her goals. They all praised her for her work ethics and encouraged her to feel confident about her remaining time at school and the forthcoming HSC Exams, encouraging her to stay focused to the end."
