The school has always given me their full support with my child's diabetes care. From day one, the staff were keen to learn and willing to be fully trained in all aspects of care for my child.

The school has been overall supportive to the child and her family in all aspects of her diabetes care. They were so keen to take on the diabetes training when she first went to school and this has continued throughout her years at school.
