Thank you for inviting us - we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team - one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He'd clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she'd have been really pleased if she'd seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.
I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.
I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.
The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff. It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.
Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
