What teachers are saying about Tanglewood

Dear Tanglewood, I would just like to send a huge thank you following our Tanglewood day with St. Filumenas School reception class on Wednesday. I am only a parent who was asked to accompany the children so not a teacher myself, but felt strongly that I should personally send my thanks on such a wonderful day. Rowan, our guide, was absolutely fantastic; she engaged brilliantly with the children, making them laugh, and totally immerse themselves in the whole experience. She gained the children's respect from the beginning and kept them engaged through out. As a mum of three, eldest 10, I have participated in many school and personal day trips and I have to say that Tanglewood was one of the best. I have been singing your praises ever since! Thank you once again on behalf of the 3 parent helpers who all agree it was wonderful!
