We are so proud of Nathan and what he has achieved at St Anthony's School. At his leavers presentation he was awarded a Diploma in Animal Care.
Change can be difficult for Nathan but everyone has been brilliant in helping with this very difficult transition and we would like to say a big thank you to his school, VSK and our fostering social worker, Dawn. Nathan is now looking forward to going to Hadlow College in September, so we would like to wish him good luck and say a big well done, and say how much he is loved.
