Parent Information

" I especially would like to comment on our impression of Ross Park last year too. It was xxx's first year at school, in Transition with Imogen Harper.  Miss Harper's calm, creative and quietly passionate approach to teaching our son has left such a positive influence on him, and exemplary impression upon my husband and me.  Miss Harper catered to individuals' strengths and areas where students might need extra encouragement, with what we came to understand as her typically even-handed and caring, tuned-in way. We had an enriching and enjoyable year with her as our guide." Parent of student in Transiton in 2013

"....thank you for all the time you have invested in her this year. I feel truly blessed that she has had the opportunity to grow and learn from you and that your approach has helped her to become a much more confident young person. I love the laughter you bring to the Preschool and the Rona Glynn families are so very lucky to have you teach their children!"  Letter from parent to Rona Glynn Preschool teacher, August 2012
