On Wednesday morning we had Leanne Del Toso visit our school. I just wanted to provide feedback that overwhelmingly both students and staff thought Leanne’s messages and presentation were fantastic. Leanne is an inspiration to all students for not only her dedication but her humility and perseverance. We wish her well with her continued adventures and thank her for coming out to Alkira.
