Just a quick note to say how appreciated it was your card on Friday: [our son] is so proud of your words and he feels so valued in school, he’s really thriving and enjoying his time in St Mark’s Hall so much. We are appreciating all the activities, all the learning, and we are as always blown away by the level of attention that you and your staff offer to our kids.
You really are making these years unforgettable for them and for us all.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the teachers for helping [my son] to make the sign on Friday to take to meet daddy at the airport! They were so excited to see him and it was a very sweet vision, [my son] holding the sign and them both running/ crawling to [their dad] as soon as he came through the gate! Really appreciate it!
This is what makes you special!

…We are sad that he will be leaving St Mark’s. As parents we could not have asked for anything better as a foundation that has been built so strong by St Mark’s which I am positive will catalyse his development at prep school and beyond that. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for nurturing and caring for our [children so] deeply. I wish you all the best and I am positive that teachers such as you all will bring the change that the world desperately needs. Thank you

I just want to say how lovely Friday night was…
The children were so good, I couldn’t have been prouder of [my son] and it’s so lovely to see him up there with all his friends, taking part in something so special. He had his chest out singing at the top of his voice, he absolutely loved it! And to see them preparing to go on stage, that was really special!
So thank you from the bottom of my heart! St Mark’s is a really special place! Thank you to all of you for being so wonderful with our children.

All my children have very fond memories of their time there and all the memories are very much linked to you and [her teacher]. You have inspired them all, shown kindness, patience and helped us all through the odd difficult patch. I believe the start you have given them has set a tone for happiness and excitement in learning. They all mentioned to me their happy memories of listening to you and your guitar, teaching them sports and always greeting us all with a smile and a firm handshake at the start of every day.
