Well done Ryan your hard work it paid off. Congrats to all the students and keep on going. It was a hard year and you were determined to finish.

Many thanks Valmai, it is always so nice to get the feedback and encouragement.

The Londolozi team, teachers, students and you Ryan have done an incredible job at the most difficult time. A person’s attitude determines your altitude. If your humble and want to learn with all enthusiasm, you will come out on top. Best of luck for 2021.

Congratulations to all the students and staff at GWF. It is a proud moment of great accomplishment for all.

Thank you very much William.

Absolutely brilliant! Well done to the students who had the greatest challenge and good luck to them all going forward.

Agreed Jennifer. The Class of 2020 were extraordinary!

Students around the world have had their learning stunted. The GWF and its students have performed admirably!

Vin, what a year it was! It was such a privilege to be part of a team and wider community what got behind our young people. Thank you 🙂

Congratulations to all the students who persevered through conditions that could have derailed their learning plans, in addition to the hard work by the GWF to keep everyone moving forward.

Thank you Denise. And even though this year is also uncertain, we feel like we are carrying over some really valuable lessons.

Ryan, thanks for the update! This is truly amazing and a measure of the commitment that the GWF team has to digital learning! We feel lucky to be a part of your GWF family, and look forward to more stories about the successes of the young people that have benefited from their education!

Thank you Michael and Terri. We’re lucky to have you! There is no doubt that there is plenty of Sarasota heart and spirit behind our resilience in the face of tough times. We can’t wait for your return.

Great job……students and staff!

Thanks Tutu 🙂

Well done guys!

Many thanks Wian.

This is terrific news, and congrats to all the graduates and the GWF team on a job well done in historically challenging times!!!

Much appreciated Paul.

💯!! My two have had a rough, but so far successful pandemic school-wise. My oldest decided to take a well-timed break and rethink what they want to study. It’s been probably most difficult on my youngest who ended her junior if high school and is now coming to the end of her senior year – all virtually. Not what she imagined it all to be like, but the resilience she has demonstrated has been amazing. I’m most astonished with their ability to adapt to these very challenging times and still persevere with mostly joy! Reading your post reinforced the universality of this!!

Ryan, So good to see the graduates and their smiles. Well deserved for all of them. Congrats! Keep up the hard work.
Christy & Larry H.

That is absolutely amazing – well done to them for persevering!
