"The children said it was the best day ever, and one boy said that when he went to bed that night he wished on a star that it would be circus again the next day again tomorrow! The children have been amazed and inspired by your work. I really appreciated your calm and inclusive approach to all the children. Thanks again." Holmewood Primary School Bradford
