In Art we are doing collages and my Art Teacher says I have worked amazingly well. My attitude is a lot better. I am more positive with my teachers and my work, and this makes me feel better. I am in school all day now and my teachers say that I’ve been "helpful, polite and superb". A real delight!Former On Course Student, 2017
