What Our Schools Think

Our teacher is awesome, and we are really enjoying working with her.  She takes extra time to work 1 on 1 with the kids and personally addresses everyone’s contributions and after teaching online during lockdown, I realise that this is much harder than it seems. 

You guys do an amazing job, and we are grateful to be taking part.

The children have loved having Andrea as their teacher. They have all learned so much! It was a wonderful opportunity to learn something that, as a small school, we were unable to offer.

Thank you so much for organising and teaching our student Afrikaans. It has been such a blessing to have your expertise and to know that his first language is being strengthened even more.

Thanks for all our lessons this year. From learning how to make a chatbot to exploring game or website makeups, all your Half Moon Bay School students loved having you as a teacher. In a technological world, as we grow up we need these things to help us understand what is happening. Thanks for giving up your time to teach us.
Sam, Student – Half Moon Bay School
