Dear Mr Steele

Thank you so much for all that you do for the boys.With the stop, start, stop situation I can just imagine what you and the staff have been through in having to constantly change timetables , classrooms, etc.

I admire you all for how you have overcome all the obstacles in your way.

For me as a parent, I was so happy that they got to go back to school yesterday – I literally got my son back!! He was so excited when I picked him up, could not wait to tell me the events of the day, mixing with his friends, the sport coaches, his beloved teacher. I actually had a tear in my eye. My gosh I am so happy to see him with that happy look again.

I am so grateful to you all.Thank you is a small word but gosh I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

We have the most amazing school.The Grade 11 boys and matric boys go out of their way to help and motivate our Gr 8 boys. My child speaks so much about them. He chatted with a friend over the weekend and he was telling them how our matrics and Grade 11 boys motivate them etc. and his friend could not believe it. At their school the Gr 11 and 12 boys ignore the Gr 8 boys. How sad. Our school has incredible leadership qualities.

So once again a very big THANK YOU from me.

(A WBHS Parent)
