“Our school verse ends with, ‘Let us remember that as many hands build a house, so many hearts make a school.’ I always get teary at that part. As a parent, I am deeply grateful that there are so many people whose giving hearts help to make this school truly special for our children.” Sincerely, Marie-Louise Little – NCS Parent
