"Our teachers are an incredible group of passionate educators, but their plates are completely full. They're so busy focusing on behaviour and learning needs that a lot of the times these kids get overlooked.

Seeing them buzzing from putting their talents into full practice still gives me goosebumps" - Kasia Jeric, MindPlus Partner Teacher, North St School, Feilding
