Fantastic!
My daughter has been in Penguins for a year and a half. She absolutely loves it. The team are wonderful, supportive and friendly. My daughter has learnt a lot but has had so much fun in the process she doesn’t even know she’s learning. Such a relaxed atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend it. Submitted 04/07/2019
