What other schools are saying

"The children absolutely loved skating with the Panthers and coming to see them train. They wanted to stay on the ice longer! The children and families who attended the game thoroughly enjoyed it and have said that they would be looking to go again another time. Thanks to the National Ice Centre staff who helped the children and found penguins for those who were struggling! We had an excellent time and would love to come again next year!"
