We're very excited because in the April school holidays, we celebrated our 1,000th student enrolment! Since opening in July last year we've had 1,000 enrolments in our classes, thanks to our ever-reliable, ever-enthusiastic team of volunteers. Here are the stats for the first quarter of this year, January 21 - April 12, 2013, and for the period from July 2012 to April 12, 2013. Note, neither of these figures include the students who came to our April school holiday programs, which is why we're now comfortably past 1,000 enrolments. Congratulations to all our volunteers and supporters - and most importantly, our students - who made this possible.
