``Just wanted to say a huge thank you for setting up the training via Joe Moretti. He has provided two fantastic training sessions so far and we've got 2 more to come in the next couple of weeks. All the teachers at West Hill have been incredibly impressed with his knowledge and he has made the training extremely fun and engaging. I have already started planning lessons around the training we received and know that many teachers have too. We're looking forward to the next sessions and to finding out more about how we can make learning fun for our kids! Really, really appreciate the support. It will really make a huge difference to the provision at West Hill. Thanks again.`` - Lola Corsan, ICT Coordinator (Westhill Primary School)
