I was met at the doorby my hosts, seated at an exquisitely decorated tablesetting and then had explained to me the dish that Iwas to be served. I was fortunate to have been ableto taste and judge a perfectly cooked and presentedcustard and chocolate tart. The associated surveysheet provided me with opportunity to critique thewhole dining experience – and might I say it was verypositive indeed.

We would ask that, unlessthere are exceptional circumstances, parents do notdrive into the school grounds. The parking area at thetop of that driveway is very congested already andthe additional traffic at times makes it unsafe forsenior students in that area. We appreciate yourcooperation.
