To all of the teachers who gave up their time and weekends your students will remember this experience and hopefully they will have learnt the importance of team work and communication. Finally to the students. It was an absolute pleasure to meet each and every one of you. I sincerely wish you the best with your studies and hopefully we will see some of you return in 2016.
