If I look back on, students in Gate Pa Primary School were angelic.
I must admit that the first impression wasn’t quite good, the school building was slightly old and parents smoking cigarettes outside the school weren’t the image I expected.
However, after My daughter, Se Eun Park, started to study at school, I found that there are so many great things about Gate Pa School.
There are polite children with pure and simple hearts, teachers’ passion, love and consideration toward students.
Moreover ESOL teacher, Tessa is fantastic; it’s hard to find someone like her. - She has a big love for everyone at school and was a brilliant English teacher for my child.
I can’t say thank you enough to the principal, Se Eun’s room teacher, Tessa and everyone who looks after students at school.

Yours sincerely
