Supporting your Child in the BGE

Thank you to all the S1 and S2 parents, speakers and school staff who attended this event.  We enjoyed getting to know you better and hope you enjoyed getting to know more about the support team in the school and beyond. Thank you also to the PTA who kept us in caffeine on a fairly dreich evening!  I would like to offer particular thanks to Ryan Gilroy…as he said himself afterwards, he spoke from the heart and his honesty and passion were very well received.  We are incredibly proud of him.
