Thanks Ross. These have been some excellent letters. Clear, compassionate and entirely reasonable. Well done. All the best and stay safe.

I would like to acknowledge the College’s excellence in the management of the Covid19 situation so far and I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all college staff for their dedication and commitment forwards the wellbeing of students. Our son has had a wonderful experience during the past weeks at Cromwell, in spite of the trying circumstances that is a credit to you all.

Good morning Ross. I want to thank you for your excellent communication about, and management of, the constantly changing situation in recent weeks. I think that you and your team have done an exemplary job in very difficult and completely unforeseen circumstances. I know that this will continue for some time yet and that there is still much to be managed. I hope that you and Jenny are, and will continue to remain, in good health.

Thanks for everything

Firstly, thank you so much for all that you've been doing for the students during this very trying time.  Every day is bringing new challenges and for the responsibilities that you have with the students, it is very much appreciated the care and support you are giving them. I think it's important that you can be in a position to close the college for the safety of your staff and for the students, so everyone can get home and quarantine. This virus is not something to mess with. Thanks again for all of the support - we'll all get through this and wine/dine/dance like there's no tomorrow once we're allowed out again!! Cheers

Thank you for all the care shown to students

Challenging times for everyone physically and emotionally

Thank you for your email and student support!!

Thank you for the way that Cromwell has handled this situation

Thank you for the updates. Whilst my son has returned, the burden of responsibility continues for you. For what it’s worth I sincerely appreciate your stewardship of the situation.

Thanks for keeping us informed and making good decisions early to keep all safe

Thank you for your communication and support throughout this time. I hope to be back at Cromwell soon.

I appreciate all you have done for me and the other students during the short time we have been here this year.

Thank you very much for the support you and your staff gave the residents and the updates you sent to parents keeping us informed as the situation changed.

Again, very much appreciate the updates we have received and look forward to a return to normality.

Thank you for sending that through Ross. Staff have been doing an amazing job to keep the College open and the students safe and cared for in such tricky times! Our son has finally agreed to come home, and is aiming for tomorrow. I'm thinking of you all and wishing you well!

Thank you for everything you’re doing for the college at the moment, I know many students, including myself, appreciate how you’re handling this very complicated situation.

Thank you for providing various correspondence in relation to this semester. Obviously it is appropriate for students to go home if it all possible and I think the college has handled the situation in the best way possible.

We appreciate your regular updates and feedback.

I hope that everything runs smoothly from here on and thank you for the effort that you've been putting in during these rough hours.

Thank you again for all your hard work and support during this unique and troubling time. Once again, a huge THANK YOU! What a final year you are having!

The perspective in your letter and the practical tips were so refreshing to read.  We are grateful for your insight and the way you are steering the Cromwell ship through rougher waters.

We would like to extend a big thanks to Ross for keeping us so well informed from afar. We are well aware of the challenges in having this smaller number of students to still look after. Greg and I want to thank you for all you are doing and continue to do for our son.

You have all been incredible through this.  Thank you so very much.

Thank you once again for looking after our children and making good decisions 

Best of luck, and please pass on our thanks and congratulations to Ross for his bold and sensible leadership throughout this period.

Our son is lucky to be a resident there & I’m thankful.

Thank you kindly for your prompt action in advising the students to leave Cromwell. Your leadership is to be applauded. Hard decisions are needed at these times. Our daughter is so happy at Cromwell and you are to be congratulated on creating such an environment for these precious young people. But could you tell the chefs she is now going to complain about food at home!!

We wish to thank you for the care and passion with which you guide Cromwell's young people

I feel compelled to thank you, and commend your leadership and the care you have shown during this unprecedented situation. Your timely, thorough and pre-emptive actions and communications with your students and us as their parents is very impressive and greatly valued.

Thank you for the communication and your efforts managing things during this unfolding crisis.

I just want to say thank you. It is so fantastic to see a place with great leadership, great staff and such a supportive and caring community. Thank you for letting us know about the ongoing online support for the students and for the reimbursement of fees

Please pass on our appreciation to Ross and all staff for the exceptional manner in which the situation has been handled. The constant communications have been very welcome in a time of such enormous challenge and uncertainty. We are sure this is a far cry from the final year that Ross had planned but we remain hopeful that things will return to a sense of normalcy by semester break and he will be sent off in the style he deserves.

Just wanted to say thank you for all your work managing the impact of this coronavirus on College students and especially George. We have felt informed and aware, and confident in our son’s welfare and wellbeing along the way.

Many thanks to Ross and the entire crew at Cromwell, we sincerely appreciate the communication and the assistance that has been provided
