Parent of Year 10 student (2019)

"One of the many things we appreciate about the staff at de Stafford is that you so often comment on the character and attitude of the students as well as the academic achievement.  As a parent, to see this happening at school as well as home is so encouraging. So, thank you for your all-rounded care of our children." 

Parent of Year 7, 8 and 10 students (2019)

Parent of Year 8 student (2019)

“I just wanted to thank you so much for your continued support for [student]. I am so proud of the young lady she has become and the results today for her. It has been an exceptionally difficult year for her and she wouldn’t have made it if it wasn’t for you! I don’t have the words to express our thanks. You believed in her and took time to understand her and I so appreciate it.”
