Welcome, Students of 8 Gold 2014-2015!
I have designed this site to support you as we go
through our many experiences this year... feel free to explore the
many pages and links, and let me know if you find something you feel
I should add, or a link that no longer works, etc. This page
is for you, so your input is much appreciated.

help you when you struggle, and to help you reach that next
So, trust in yourself and your abilities, and
let's take those first steps together.
Good luck, and please let me know if you need any
