Thanks to all the teaching assistants. You run the school, you are all heros. Thanks for sitting down to have a chat or to tell the teacher vital information for me. i admire you all. Every teaching assistant has had to work with me and has helped me to get on the top table of every subject . I don't care what the council say, you deserve every penny. Thank you so much.
