“I would just like to thank Mel for her amazing work last Friday with the Roman Archaeological Dig. The Year 11 students absolutely loved the dig, and by the end of the day weren’t ready to go home and wanted to keep uncovering artefacts. Mel paced the dig well and the explanations and engagement of students during each step of the archaeological dig was excellent! Mark did a great job helping the students out and ensuring the dig ran smoothly. Thank you so much, on behalf of the students (who couldn’t stop talking about it on the bus ride back to school).”
