Marvellous news - sounds very good indeed.

Any documentation or guidance that you can share to allow others to reach your heights?

The Joesph Goebbels approach always works well ;)

On a more serious note this is actually the product of 8 years hard work.

I can e-mail you the sorts of things we put in the application if you like

Congratulations. I expect your efforts were largely responsible for the award. Were they impressed with your use of Forums?

Thanks John

The forum, comenius and my websites certainly featured in the focus schools application.

However most of the credit for the latest award should however go to those who have established excellent community links with our primary feeders - our ICT consultant and network manager.
