It is next to impossible not to get to know most people in the community. All the other families were extremely nice and welcoming. There were lots of events, including a Mother's Day Tea at the local cafe, where the students performed for the parents in a kind of fun little recital. There is no real parent council or anything because the communication between the management is very open and transparent. They are very open to new ideas by the parents and even began providing catered lunches at the request of some of the people in the community. The teachers we dealt with were very friendly and personable, and were very open with us. Overall, an extremely welcoming and involving school that is open and reliable.
