“A massive thank you to them both for sharing their stories with our pupils and staff.

“A big thank you to the very talented Paul Curtis for his amazing artwork on our school wall.  Pupil’s and our whole school community will be reminded, every day that they CAN achieve their potential just like Katarina and Jack.”
