Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

Bertolotto previously spent 11 years at Edinburgh Academy junior school and is ecstatic about the Aberdeen young: ‘bright, bouncy and engaged’.
