  • I honoustly don’t know how to begin, and thank you, the principal and everyone at school. I am so happy that (child’s name) landed in your hands. There is a job, and there is a soul job, and all I can observe from all the teachers at St James is that they ALL are determined and called for this, and this further extends to the positive character building that my son has gotten from having been at St James since Grade 3. I am grateful for the willingness to assist. The staff tend to go the extra mile. How amazing that we have formed part of St James, and remained after all we have been through. May the good Lord provide you with the strength to stay and be there for our children who are yet to enter your gates, regardless of the various family dynamics that they might present. I call upon the guardian angels to protect you all and maintain the spirit of kindness and love that you displayed to us so far. Forever grateful. Grade 7 Parent
