I’ve been at Sports Day this morning, my son is in Reception, and I just felt I had to send a message of thanks to all the staff and children at Gilded Hollins. It made me really emotional this morning to watch all the kids at different ages and how they treat each other. The older ones helping the younger ones finish their races, and giving those at the back an extra loud cheer of encouragement to help them finish. I was stood near the finish line and the older kids celebrated and congratulated each one who came to the end, no matter how long they took. No judging, no laughing, just a field full of love and support. It was just so lovely to see how they care for each other and made me feel so grateful that we chose to send our son here. I know he’s in really great hands.
It was a pleasure to have your children on site!
Your children were a credit to you. They played hard but fair! Good luck in the season!
Your class are a credit to you! They worked very hard and made me feel very welcome! Thank you for the morning!
It was a delight to spend the day at Gilded Hollins, I was extremely impressed with how well the children behaved. They were respectful and polite and made the day easy for me. It would be a pleasure to visit again in the future.

I wanted to write to you personally to say it was a privilege to be invited to Gilded Hollins and spend time with your children and staff. Our presenter, Ben, said that the children were very well-behaved, showed great enthusiasm for learning about space and asked lots of fascinating questions.
Please pass on our thanks to the children and staff who came to the Wonder Dome planetarium.
