Dear Gloria,

Thank you on behalf of all the classes, who attended your recent Starlab presentations, at our school. Both teachers and students were amazed by your knowledge and the 3D visual presentation.

The Starlab visit made a fitting conclusion to our term study of Space, as it reinforced and extended the knowledge children had been presented with.

All the best for a continued successful year with Starlab.
