Dear Members,

We hope that term starts smoothly for you and you are able to welcome back the vast majority of your boarders.

We would like to gain a sense of how many boarders have returned to our member schools. Therefore, next week’s newsletter will include a link to a very short survey asking for information about your boarders. We ask that you complete this as soon as possible and once we have processed the data we will share a summary with you.
